Students may seek a transfer due to medical conditions that require specialised care or proximity to specific medical facilities

Students with disabilities might seek a transfer to a university better equipped with the necessary facilities and support systems to accommodate their needs.

Financial constraints can significantly impact a student's ability to continue their education at their current university.

Sometimes, students find themselves in courses that do not align with their career aspirations or academic interests. A transfer allows them to pursue their preferred program.

There can be various other reasons for requesting a transfer, such as personal or family circumstances, safety concerns, or academic issues

After the transfer is successful, KUCCPS also notifies the University Funding Board (UFB) and the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) which also make the changes on their end.
