1 min read

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service is established by the Universities Act, 2012 to coordinate the placement of Government-sponsored students to universities and colleges, among other functions.

The Placement Service Board held its 28th meeting on 17th January, 2018 to discuss the 2018/2019 placement of Government-sponsored students to Universities and Colleges.

After considering the analysis of the 2017 KCSE Examination Results together with the available capacities in Kenyan Universities and Colleges, the Board resolved that:

  1. All 2017 KCSE candidates who scored a minimum aggregate grade of C+ and above shall be eligible for placement to both public and private universities to pursue degree courses under Government sponsorship.
  2. All candidates who scored a minimum mean grade of C – (minus) and above shall be eligible for placement to pursue diploma courses offered in tertiary institutions. 
  3. All candidates who scored a mean grade of D and above shall be eligible for placement to craft certificate courses offered in public colleges.

Towards this end, the Placement Service will open its online application system for applicants to revise their choices on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at 00.00 hours and close on February 14, 2018 at midnight.

Those who did not submit their applications through their schools may use this opportunity to apply for degree, diploma or certificate courses of their choice as Government supported students.

Candidates who sat for their KCSE examination earlier than 2017 are only eligible for placement to Diploma and Certificate courses.

The application procedure and other relevant guiding information may be accessed through the Placement Service website www.kuccps.ac.ke.
