NOTES

  • CUE Regulations for semester system requires a minimum of 15 weeks per semester. The May Semester courses will be taught for 4 CHs per week.
  • Students are expected to be fulltime for two consecutive semesters to complete one academic year.
  • Lecturers teaching more than the annual workload requirement can be encouraged to take paid extra load. For example maximum load of 12 credit hours per year can be distributed into 4 credit hours per semester for 3 semesters, or 6 credit hours for two semesters. HODs will need to report workload allocation to DVCAA through the Registrar’s office every year.
  • Students’ admission will happen in every semester.
  • Orientation period is for new students and staff training/orientation.
  • Evening students and other weekly classes e.g. 1 day a week are to run along the regular semester dates.
  • E-Learning students should also run along the regular semester or block courses.
  • Modular students such as D. Min, MAOL, PhD and MA Translation studies meeting times must be declared to the DVCAA and the Registrar in advance and students must keep registration dates set for the semesters when their classes fall.
  • School-based students meet thrice in a year during the School holidays in Kenya (August, December and April).
