The University of Nairobi College of Humanities and Social Sciences and College of Health Sciences will be holding the 62nd graduation ceremony on 20th December 2019. The university administration announced through the website on the event, which will be held at the Chancellor’s Court main campus.
UoN Is recognized as the crème de la crème institution of tertiary education in the country and in Eastern Africa. Since its full founding in 1970, it has produced the highest number of graduates in the country; more than 240,000 according to its fact file.
The upcoming graduation ceremony will only be enhancing the footprint of the institution locally and internationally considering that more than 9000 students are poised to graduate. However, the conditions for graduation might lock out some students, as previously evident for instance in previous Moi University graduation ceremonies.
According to the memo, only those that had completed paying their fees by 20 November will graduate. Those that did were also required to confirm the order of their names by this date.
Graduands are also required to obtain clearance from respective departments, the library, accommodation office, games, and the school finance then pay a convocation fee of Ksh 1000.
Meanwhile, the gown will be obtained between 9th and 19th December after payment of a non-refundable gown hire fee of Ksh 4000 and will be required to return the gowns by 10th January 2020.
Interestingly, graduates are allowed to purchase a gown but must contact the Deputy Registrar, Central Examinations Centre for more details. Be ready to pour some serious cash since a full undergraduate gown piece can set you back Ksh 43,000 according to Academic Dress Hire
The rehearsals shall be held on Thursday, December 19 at the Chancellor’s court as from 10:00 am and all graduands are required to attend. Each graduand will be issued with two invitation cards for two guests and unfortunately, children will not be allowed. Finally, graduands and invited guests should be seated by 7:00 am on the graduation day.
The UoN graduation list (2019) is not out yet but once it’s out, we shall provide it below. If you are very eager to see the graduation list, keep refreshing the UoN website’s graduation list page. Otherwise, stay posted.
