*Note the Fees are subject to annual Review.
**If you are paying in US$ dollars, please note that the USD Exchange Rates are fixed every semester for non-East Africans, while the rate varies daily for East Africans.
***Non-East Africans will pay 30% above local rates for tuition and all mandatory fees i.e. library, medical and student activity fees.

****Project/Thesis: Masters students are required to be continuously enrolled every semester while their Thesis II/Project II remains incomplete.

  • In the first registration of Thesis II, the Thesis II is charged as a full 3 unit graduate course, while the 2nd and 3rd registration of Thesis II, is charged at 50% of the tuition. Other charges remain the same.
  • If the Project II/Thesis II extends beyond the 3rd registration, then tuition reverts to full charge.

***** All fees are payable on or before the 1st day of the Semester. Any balance thereafter attracts a penalty of 1.5% per month.
