Or are you a continuing student who for one reason or another wants to change your course of study?

Well, if you fall into any of the above categories of students, then this post is meant for you.

Inter/Intra school transfer at Kenyatta University is the process of changing your course to another one. One can change course provided that he/she meets two conditions:

  • You must meet the cut-off points for the course you want to join. For example, if the cut-off point is 34.5 and you scored 34.4 during KCSE, Kenyatta University administration will NOT allow you to do the course.
  • You must apply for a change of course within the specified time frame. (This is usually the first two or three weeks after the start of an Academic Semester.

Now, let’s dive into the step-by-step procedure below.

    I would like to change my course ,is it possible at this time

    1. Moha

      Yes sure. Considering today’s date, you can change your course within 2 weeks at the beginning of the semester.

  2. Boniface Atsanga

    Can you change courses twice

    1. Moha

      Yes, it is possible to change courses more than once.

      But I don’t recommend it though. You will be delayed in graduating if you keep on jumping from one course to another.

    Where will I be given the two letters of transfer?

      1. Austine

        When changing course do they also check the cut off points?

        1. Moha

          Yes sure.

          KU is very strict when it comes to following rules. When changing courses they will ask for your KUCCPS portal login details and check whether you meet the cutoff points and subject requirements.

    Are the results out?

    1. Moha

      Hello Bernard. I’m not really sure if the Inter/Intra School results are out. Please visit your school and confirm. Results are usually pinned to notice boards in all schools. For example, if you are changing from School of Engineering to School of Medicine, you’ll need to visit Medicine School Notice Board.

      Did you go and check? And if you did did you find the results.
