How TVET students Can Check Their KUCCPS Status
The Kenya University and Colleges Central Placement (KUCCPS) has announced the names of students who have been chosen to attend various Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutes.
KUCCPS announced that 265,145 students who applied for various courses in February were shortlisted for degree and TVET programs in the 2021/2022 cycle.
Agnes Wahome, the CEO of KUCCPS, announced that 137,072 of the total applicants were placed in TVETs, while 128,073 will pursue degree programs at various universities.
Students can check the status of their application through the student portal by visiting www.students.kuccps.net. While at the website, the applicants are required to log in using their credentials as follows;
Enter KCSE Index Number, the year of examination, and their password.
The applicants are advised to use their Birth Certificate Number or KCPE Index Number (as used in KCSE Exam Registration) as their initial password.
“Once you have confirmed the college to which you have been placed, contact the institution for joining instructions,” read the statement by KUCCPS.
The total fees for a year at the technical institutions is set at Ksh56,420. The government fee subsidy covers Ksh30,000
Students can apply for a loan through the Higher Education Loans Board to help pay the remaining Ksh26,420 balance.
This can be done by going to helb.co.ke.
In a past interview with The Nation, the KUCCPS CEO noted that TVET performs its placement exercise in three cycles.
However, the institutions are the ones to guide the students on when to report, based on their academic calendars.
“We do not dictate to the students should report. Once we place, we encourage the institutions to agree with the students on when to report, based on the available resources. We also encourage them to introduce open, distance, and e-learning (ODEL) and blended learning where possible,” she stated.
