Why is the portal closed early without student fully registering their units?
Unit registration has deadlines. All students are required to register for units on offer for a particular semester/trimester at the beginning of the semester within the first four weeks upon payment of 30% of the semester/trimester fees.
The purpose of online unit registration is for the university to be able to plan for the semester/trimester which if not adhered to will inconvenience other processes in the University.
For digital varsity students, notes and other student materials can only be accessed upon registration of units. It is, therefore, necessary that registration is done at the beginning of the semester and not every time.
Where should mku students collect their Result Slips?
Mount Kenya University students should view their results online from their students’ portals (studentportal.mku.ac.ke). In case one wishes to take the physical slip to the parent/guardian/employer the HOD/Coordinator can issue a signed and stamped copy.
