KUCCPS First Revision of Choices: Fact Check

  1. The KUCCPS portal is open for the First Revision of Choices. What does this mean and who is the target?

KUCCPS has an online channel (KUCCPS Portal) through which secondary school graduates apply for placement to programmes offered in universities and colleges. Initially, KUCCPS targets KCSE graduates and other persons seeking training opportunities. KUCCPS processed the applications that were received and reopened the portal to allow those who have not yet secured a course to apply for the remaining programmes.

The First Revision of Choices targets applicants who applied for courses and have not yet secured a course; KCSE examination candidates who have not yet applied for courses (Form Four leavers ) from the year 2000 to 2022 who have never enrolled in any tertiary training institution through the KUCCPS system.

  1. Which courses are available on the portal? How can someone know the available programmes?

The available programmes are at all levels – degree, diploma, craft certificate, and artisan certificate. Only the courses remaining with capacity after the initial application have been provided on the portal. Applicants should log in to KUCCPS Student Portal to view the available programmes.

  1. If someone applied recently and has received a message that they have been placed provisionally, what does it mean?

It means that the student has secured placement in one of their course choices but has to wait for the process to be completed. They need not reapply/revise their choices. The results of the placement will be communicated to the students at the very end of the placement process.

  1. What are the options for those who applied for KMTC or other programmes and did not succeed?

Those who scored C+ and above can apply for degree or diploma programmes that are on the portal. Some KMTC courses are also still available. There are also courses offered by the Open University of Kenya. Those who have C and below can apply for available TVET or TTC programmes. Additionally, there will be another KMTC intake later in the year.

  1. When revising choices, do applicants have to pay again?

Applicants need not pay again when revising their choices. They should use the same payment reference provided by eCitizen when they were paying during the recent application. This is the same code they should use as their account number when making payments.

  1. Where should applicants seek help?

They can start with their nearest Huduma Centre, where they will either find a KUCCPS officer or a Huduma Centre cybercafé attendant to assist them. KUCCPS service desks are available at Nairobi GPO, Eldoret, Meru, Nyeri, Kisumu, Kakamega, Nakuru, Kitui, Garissa, Isiolo, Thika, Nanyuki, Kitale, Narok and Mombasa

Huduma Centres. Secondly, they should visit any university or TVET institution where KUCCPS is offering support. Details of the institutions are on the KUCCPS website.
