POSSIBLE REASONS FOR INTER-UNIVERSITY/ INSTITUTION TRANSFER
Lastly, it is advisable to give a valid reason that can easily sway the inter-university results. Remember that applying for an inter-university transfer does not automatically qualify you. Your application has to undergo verification before you can finally receive your results.
On your application form, you must give reasons for applying for the KUCCPS inter-university transfer. Your reasons had better be good enough, otherwise, your transfer application will get trashed.
Below are some of the reasons that you can give to justify your KUCCPS 2020/2021 Inter-university transfer:
- You can argue that the cost of living and tuition fees is rather too high for you
- Secondly, you can peg your reasons for unfavorable/ unconducive climatic conditions that are likely to affect your general health. This reason requires medical evidence.
- You can also say that the location of the institution is not ideal for you especially if you have got other engagements. For instance, if you have enrolled for another course within Nairobi that you will be undertaking alongside the KUCCPS choice, then it will be easier to convince the board to transfer you to an institution/ university that is within Nairobi. Remember to give evidence to back your application.
