Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What should I do if I paid, 24 banking hours have elapsed, and still I cannot proceed to the next step?
This maybe because while paying the application fee, the bank teller or agent did not capture your correct Reference Number, or we have not received your payment confirmation from the bank you paid at. In that case, kindly scan and send (requires login) a clear copy of the payment bank slip for confirmation, or contact the Finance Office to determine the cause of such delay for payment confirmation.
I cannot access my account, what should I do?

First, check whether you had created an account and that you are entering the correct email address.

If the email address is correct and still cannot login, try resetting the password.

If you are unable to reset your password, try resetting your account. But this works if and only if you had not been given a reference number.

If you exhaust those options, kindly contact the Office of Student Admission and Recruitment to reset your password.

When shall I know that I have qualified or not?
Selection is usually done in batches; the first one being around July, subsequently after every two to three weeks upto mid August. Once selection for your programme is completed, you will be notified through the portal, email, SMS, or voice call.
How should I know the programme I qualify for?
For you to qualify for a programme, you MUST first meet the minimum academic qualifications, then at the time of consideration the capacity required should have not been exceeded. Sometimes you may meet the minimum requirements but fail to be considered because the class number required is already reached.
Can I defer my studies?
Yes. But your deferment can ONLY be granted if you had been ADMITTED for the programme you applied and qualified for.
Can I apply using an application form other than online?

All Module II applications for both diploma and degree programmes are done online on this portal.

Applicants for posgraduate programmes can download application forms available at the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies website. Postgraduate applicants should also fill in their details online here on this portal in order to get Admission Numbers and be able to access the Student Online Portal once they are registered.

Although, TU-K does not offer the 1-year Certificate programmes. But you will be notified in case the Certificate courses are revived.

What should I do if I paid before getting a Reference Number?
In such a case, kindly create an account and obtain a Reference Number then scan and send (requires login) a clear copy of the bank slip or physically visit the Finance Department with the original bank slip.
Can I use my previous Reference Number?
No. In every application cycle, new Reference Numbers are generated even if you applied for a programme the previous cycle. You should always first check for your new Reference Number before paying when applying for a programme in subsquent intake cycles.
When is the deadline for receiving applications?
Deadlines are usually set in every advertisement, and displayed on the this portal too. Current Status:
