How to proceed after one has been admitted:
- Full-time students who need housing should apply using the ‘housing application form’ available from the admissions office, also included with the application packet.
- All students need to deposit their term 1 fees (these are required to secure a house). These fees will be refunded if you aren’t able to enroll in the year of admission. Bank details are on the admission letter.
- Once you have made travel arrangements you should inform the admissions office of your arrival date. If you are a residential student, AIU can offer transport assistance from Nairobi (airport or bus stop) to the AIU campus. However, this assistance is only available through prior arrangement with the admissions office.
- All new students are required to attend Orientation week, so note the dates given on the admission letter and ensure that you arrive at AIU in good time.
- Residential students should carry warm clothing as the Karen area can be very cold, especially in the period from May to September.
- Registration and payment of full fees should be completed within the first week of classes.
- International students should apply for a student visa/Kenya Pupils’ Pass (KPP) immediately after admission; approximately three months are required to process a KPP.
- Get police clearance (certificate of good conduct or its equivalent) from your country of origin before you travel here.
- You will need your academic certificates equated. See the Kenya Commission for University Education and the Kenya National Examinations Council for instructions on equation.
If you have any concerns, please let the admissions office know via chat or email (see additional contacts at the website footer) and we will try to assist you accordingly.
