Kenyatta University Fee Structure for Self Sponsored Students

You are currently viewing Kenyatta University Fee Structure for Self Sponsored Students

If you are surfing through the internet and you come across this article, it probably means that you are searching for Kenyatta University’s official Fee Structure for Self Sponsored Students.

If you didn’t know before, the fee structure for SSP students studying at Kenyatta University is determined by three factors:

  1. Type of program (Undergraduate or Postgraduate).
  2. Nature of Programme (Art-based, Science-based, etc).
  3. Nationality (East Africans pay a much lower amount than those students who hail from outside the East African region).

What are statutory fees?

This is a fee paid by a student who has been admitted into a public university in Kenya and it is usually remitted by the institution to the Government.

Without wasting much time, let’s jump into the details below.

    Hello Moha.

    If your calling off letter does not get approved, does that mean I’ll lose sponsorship with the government? Looking forward to your reply.

    1. Moha

      Hello. You won’t lose the govt sponsorship.

    Hello Moha.on your previous post you said that KU admission is valid for two year.i was called in KU but didn’t report nor write a call off I was asking if right now I want to report since my problem was solved,will I be able to join ASAP or I’ll have to wait and join with others?

    1. Moha

      Hello too. Yes that’s true. It is valid for two years.
      It’s your choice to report now or wait for others. However if you choose to report now you’ll find that your classmates are in the second semester and you’ll have missed an entire sem. This will become difficult for you as some units require that you’ve done the prerequisites earlier on.
      Ultimately it’s better if you choose to wait for the next academic year (beginning September) and report with new cohort.
