Inter-faculty transfers are processed within the first three weeks of the first semester. Students should note that transfers could only be offered if there is a vacant position and if the student meets the requisite admission criteria for the particular course. Students should also note that merit is used as a criteria for transfer and that all applicants to a particular course will be ranked in order of merit and will be allocated the vacant position on merit. A student wishing to transfer will be required to fill in the Inter-faculty Transfer Application Form which is available at the Admissions Office. The form must be completed and returned within the stipulated time. Students who will have succeeded in their application for transfer will receive an official letter of transfer from the Academic Registrar and will be expected to report and register in their new courses by the fourth week of the semester at the latest. It is important for students to note that all inter-faculty transfers are subject to approval by the Deans Committee and that once the transfers have been approved the exercise is closed and no late applications or appeals will be considered.
