Private Universities Are Exempted From KUCCPS Management

Private Universities Are Exempted From KUCCPS Management

The removal of for-profit university representatives from the board of directors of the Kenya Universities and Colleges and Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has been advocated by Wamboka Wanami, a member of parliament from Bumula.

The University (Amendment) Bill 2023, which Wamboka requested be excluded, was introduced to Parliament at the beginning of August 2023.

According to the member selected on the DAP-K platform, excluding private universities from the Universities Fund will protect it by ensuring that only public institutions receive funding.

college financing Kenya provides funding for the postsecondary institutions that KUCCPS places students in.

Therefore, prohibiting private schools from selecting where students are placed will have a considerable impact on the distribution of money, particularly at a time when public universities are experiencing financial difficulty.

The proposed bill modifies Section 55(3). According to a legitimate rule, the two vice chancellors who represent private universities on the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service board are ineligible.

According to the statute, the chairperson, the commission secretary, the CEOs of the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) and the TVET Funding Board are among the eleven people who make up the KUCCPS board of directors.

The other members include the CEO of the TVETA, the Principal Secretary (PS) of the ministry in charge of higher education, two vice chancellors of public universities, two representatives of the Kenya Association of Technical Institutions, and the PS of the ministry in charge of finances.

Wamboka also proposed a strategy that would limit enrollment in public universities to those who were sponsored by the government.

By doing this, KUCCPS would guarantee that public institutions are given preference when admitting students who have earned a C+ or higher as a minimum entry grade.

Within a month, KUCCPS must publish and widely publicize the proposed changes, emphasizing the new placement criteria for students receiving government aid.

The law’s provisions, according to the lawmaker, should take effect six months after it is passed.

Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, announced in May 2023 that the government will no longer pay the tuition for students receiving government assistance who attend private colleges.

The CS asserted that the decision was made in order to solve the budget crisis facing public universities and maintain their long-term viability.

To further achieve this, the government introduced the Higher Education Financing Portal, a brand-new funding structure that will prioritize a student-centric strategy when awarding cash.

The Higher Education Loans Board (HELB), which formerly offered loans to all students, has created a separate webpage via which university and TVET students can now apply for loans, scholarships, and bursaries.

Students attending private colleges, however, will only be eligible for government support and not scholarships, unlike their classmates at public universities.

Current students receiving loans from the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) won’t be affected by the new funding structure.
