How you will henceforth be paying for KUCCPS services

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has unveiled new codes that will be used in the payment of some of its services.

In a public notice on Tuesday, the placement body said the move follows the government’s directive that all government services be integrated with the eCitizen platform.

The new changes affect various categories of people, including local students, universities, local NGOs, businesses, and bidders.

“For efficiency, KUCCPS services have been assigned codes for purposes of eCitizen transactions. Henceforth, stakeholders are advised to use the following payment reference codes while paying for the listed services via the platform,” read part of the notice.

KUCCPS noted that it has designed unique codes for every service and users will be required to use them when making payments.

For instance, Universities registering for membership will be required to use ‘RGMU’ while colleges will use ‘RMCL’ for the same service.


In addition, code ‘PDRL’ will be used by local students for the provision of data for research, while ‘PCCB’ will be used for the purchase of career books.
