- Password: (Use your Birth Certificate Number)
Once you logged in you will be able to see the course and university or college you have been placed.
Through KUCCPS Mobile App
This is the most convenient way of checking course placed. However, before using this method you must first download the mobile app from Google store.
To download KUCCPS student portal app go to google play store or click here.
Once the app has been downloaded, you can log in by using your KCSE index number, enter the year you did your KCSE and use either Your Birth Certificate Number or KCPE Index Number (as used in KCSE Exam Registration) as your Initial Password.
This involves the placement body sending message directly to the phone number of an applicant. Remember that during application for placement of courses, one is required to add mobile phone number in personal information.
