Over the years, the University Senate has been getting special requests from students who for one reason or another, did not do well in their examinations, and who wish to be given special consideration.  Sometimes, this is well after the examination period is over.  These problems include:

  1. Sickness of various types
  2. Absence from the University due to personal problems-funerals, finances, police cases, land cases etc.
  3. Negligence by the student
  4. Problems with various members of staff-in class or outside

Senate has made it ABUNDANTLY CLEAR THAT IT WILL NOT ENTERTAIN CASES WHICH ARE REPORTED AFTER THE EXAMINATIONS ARE OVER.  The appropriate time to report is BEFORE the examinations and not after.  You are, therefore, reminded that if there is ANY problem which is likely to interfere with the academic programme, it is YOUR responsibility to inform the Dean/Director or the Chairman of your Department in good time of such a problem.  If it is a medical problem of whatsoever nature, the appropriate person to report to is the Chief Medical Officer, University of Nairobi Health Services, who will then inform the Dean’s/Director’s Office in writing.

Certificates or other documents from your private doctor are NOT acceptable.
