VC Communique to all students
SUBJECT: NOTICE TO ALL CONTINUING AND NEW STUDENTS
It has come to the attention of my office that there is a lot of misleading and fictitious information to students purporting to be from the University.
I wish to clarify and inform you that, following the Government directive to suspend all face-to-face learning as a measure to contain the spread of Coronavirus, the University suspended face-to-face learning and requested all regular students to leave the University premises.
It is important to note that, by the time the University suspended face-to-face learning, the diploma students had only one week remaining to complete their studies for the trimester and sit for the final examinations. The degree students had three weeks remaining to complete the semester. Since the majority of the students had met their obligations, the University has to see them complete their trimester/semester studies.
To facilitate completion of the trimester/semester studies, the University migrated all the regular students to the online learning platform. This would pave way for those ready to proceed for attachment, those preparing for the
graduation later in the year and the rest to advance with their studies immediately upon resumption of normalcy. The DIBEL/ODEL students continue with their studies online as they have been doing.
Should the current situation prolong further, the University will continue to support all students through the online learning platform awaiting further advice.
The reporting date for the new students will remain as earlier communicated, and if normalcy will not have resumed, they will commence their studies online. However, once normalcy resumes, they will be allowed to report for face-to-face learning at their respective Campuses.
Please note that students who are writing their theses and research projects will continue uninterrupted with the support of their supervisors as earlier communicated.
Kindly note that the University fee payment policy which allows payment by instalments (pay as you learn) has not changed and will also apply for all University online studies.
or call 0709153000 for support. We commit to respond to queries within the shortest time possible.
Kindly abide by all the directives from the Government of Kenya on keeping safe from Coronavirus.
Thank you for your cooperation.
