 Final Provisional Graduation List - 29 Aug 2017

Note that “ in absentia”applies ONLY to the ONE  NAME aligned to the left directly below the word ‘’In absentia”. See link below for Important Commencement dates to remember  - http://www.usiu.ac.ke/commencement/921-commencement-2017-dates-to-remember.

Kindly note that The Commission for University Education (CUE) requires that all students must complete all degree requirements before they are eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony. In addition, the Senate must confirm that all graduating students meet the requirements and approve the graduation list. This is the reason the university Senate  approved 9th September 2017 as the graduation date and not 19th August 2017 as indicated in the academic calendar. This will allow for the processing of summer examination results and for the Senate approval.
