A few years ago, it was virtually impossible to get your Academic transcript from Kenyatta University whenever you needed it.

The transcripts office would take you in circles that the transcripts ‘would be available by next week’. Next week would turn into months and years, and in many cases, students would graduate having never seen what an Unofficial Transcript looked like!

This prompted the student leaders to take up the issue with the school Administration.

In turn, they responded by introducing a new feature in the student portal that would enable students to download their Academic Transcripts whenever needed.
