(ii) Registration - At the start of each semester (within the first three weeks) every student must

the relevant forms at the Directors of school offices. It is important that students get the right
information for their respective schools on the examination they are expected to take in each
semester.

registered in and to take the requisite continuous assessment tests in those courses in order to be

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON UNIVERSITY PROCEDURES AND PROCESSES

Deferment of admission - An applicant who for any reason is unable to take up the offer of
admission will be required to inform the Registrar Academic Affairs by either filing in Form of the
joining instructions or writing directly to the academic registrar. This information should reach the
Registrar Academic Affairs registrar at least one week prior to the date of registration. Such deferment
will lapse after two years and the applicant will be required to reapply afresh for admission. It is
important that an applicant who defers admission ensures that he or she receives an official letter of
deferment of admission from the Registrar Academic Affairs. An applicant who fails to inform the
Registrar Academic Affairs of his/her deferment of admission will be deemed to have forfeited his/her
position and will be deregistered form the course admitted to.

Student identity cards - After the registration formalities and payment of fees, every student is
issued with a student identity card bearing his/her picture and name, registration number and the
course and, school, registered in and the duration of the course. The identity card allows easy
identification of students and gives the student access to various UNIVERSITY services (e.g. the
library, the hostel etc.) Every student must ensure that they have their student identity card at all
times and that the card has the correct information and is valid for the duration the student is in the
UNIVERSITY.

Loss of identity card - A student who loses his/her UNIVERSITY identity card will be required to
report the loss to a police station and acquire an abstract. They will also be required to report the loss
to their school offices from where they get a letter confirming the loss and their student status. After
getting these two documents the student should report to the library for a clearance not to indicate
that the card is not held in the library. After that the student report to the Admissions office for a re-
issue of the student card upon payment of Kshs.500.

Temporary withdrawal - If for any reason a student who is already registered for a programme has
to leave the University for a particular period, the student will be required to apply to the Registrar
Academic Affairs for temporary withdrawal. All applications for temporary withdrawal must be
endorsed by the Director of the respective school and must state the reasons and the duration of such
withdrawal. Any student who withdraws from a programme without seeking appropriate authority
will be deemed to have absconded from the course and will therefore be de-registered.

Absence due to illness - A student whose illness may affect learning must contact the University
Director Medical services at the earliest time possible. The advice given by the Director Medical
services will than be communicated to the Director of the school and the Academic Registrar.

Nominal roll - The nominal roll is a record of students registered in each degree programmed every
semester/year. It gives important details on the student as well as recording the progress of the
student each semester (and yearly). It is important for every student to ensure that he/she signs the
nominal roll in the Directors office of their respective school at the beginning of each semester and to
ensure that the information given in the nominal roll is correct and up to date.

Course/subject registration - Every student is required to register for the course/subjects he/she
will undertake by filling in the relevant form at the Directors office at the beginning of every semester
(first three weeks). The student must ensure that the registration is complete by having the form
approved and signed by the chairman of department where the courses are to be offered and the
Directors of the respective school. When registering for the courses the student will do well to ensure
that the correct course codes are used and that the form is returned to the Director’s Office promptly.
