KUCCPS Opens College Course Selection Portal for Form 4 Students, How to Apply

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has opened the course registration portal for candidates applying for Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) 2021 candidates who are due to take their exams in March 2022.

KUCCPS CEO Mercy Wahome said she started the application process after conducting awareness training during the course among education stakeholders.

She added that the systems have been automated and will ensure the process is fair for all applicants who apply.

KUCCPS Chairman of the Board, Joe Ager, presents Acting CEO Agnes Wahome with letters of appointment on Tuesday, November 17, 2020.


Additionally, students wishing to apply to join the Teacher Training Colleges (TTCs) will be able to use the platform for the first time after KUCCPS added the placement of TTCs to the portal.

“KUCCPS will add value to TTC admission by using its automated placement system to ensure fair competition among applicants.

“Affirmative action will also be applied for the benefit of candidates with disabilities and those from marginalized regions,” she said.

The placement organization has announced over 546 degree programs with 218 additional college courses and 114 certificate courses.

How to register

Students must pay 500 Ksh to open an account with the help of their teachers and school administrators.

By visiting the placement portal, candidates will register for the programs after inserting their KCSE index numbers, KCSE year and creating a password.

Additionally, applicants are advised to use their KCSE index numbers or birth certificate numbers as initial passwords.

“Use your birth certificate number/KCPE index number (as used in KCSE exam registration) as your initial password,” reads a statement on the KUCCPS application portal.

However, candidates will be allowed to make course revisions in May after the results are announced, with internships due to start in June.
