Welcome to Tharaka University! We are committed to providing you with a flexible and supportive academic environment. One of the ways we do this is by offering the option for course transfers. Here’s what you need to know:

Understanding Course Transfer: Course transfer allows you to switch from one course or program to another within the university. This can be particularly useful if you discover a new area of interest or if your academic goals change.

Here are a few key points to help you get started:

  1. Orientation and Reporting: Upon your arrival, you’ll participate in our orientation program designed to help you familiarize yourself with the campus, meet fellow students, and complete the necessary reporting procedures.
