Notice To Applicants For Diploma Placement

NAIROBI, June 20, 2017

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service wishes to inform applicants for diploma placement as follows:

  1. The ongoing online application is for inter-institution transfers (IITs) and is only open to applicants who have already been placed but wish to be transferred to other institutions.
  2. In July, after the conclusion of the IITs, we shall announce when diploma applications will resume. The actual date and other instructions will be posted on the Placement Service website and other official platforms.

The Placement Service also wishes to caution applicants that some unscrupulous individuals are purporting to be in a position to assist them to secure placement if they send money to certain mobile phone numbers. These fraudsters are targeting students through social media, particularly Facebook. 

Please note that the Placement Service only receives placement fees through the dedicated Pay Bill Number 820201 provided in the application guidelines available on the student’s portal.

Applicants are advised to report such fraudsters through the lines 0723 954 927 / 0734 879 662 or send an email to
