Can I apply on-line?


No, you need to sit the exam at Strathmore Law school and attend a personal interview.


Are there scholarships?


There are scholarships available for top and needy students, who have scored an average “A” in the KCSE.


The University has also identified possible sources of funding for students seeking resources to finance their undergraduate education. The sources can help pay for tuition and fees, books and supplies, and living expenses. Since the university has limited resources to provide scholarships to the many students who deserve, it tries to assist students get alternative sources of resources to finance their education. Our ideal is that no deserving student should fail to get a place in the University owing to lack of financial means; the University has, therefore, over the years sought the assistance of private and public institutions, as well as individuals, to contribute to the bursary scheme.


Are there student loans?


Strathmore University in collaboration with the Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA) has established a Student Loan Scheme. This loan facility has been setup so that parents or sponsor can borrow money from CBA in order to pay fees.


The University will issue applicants with a loan recommendation and a loan repayment schedule form through the credit controller’s office. Applicants will then fill in standard loan application forms at the bank for evaluation by the bank and upon approval get the loan facility.


The loan facility is meant for parents and sponsors who wish to pay the full semester fees at the beginning of the semester or the full fees for the academic year. Interest charges will be fixed in the year in which the loan will be applied and granted. Currently, the interest rate is at 1% per month repayable over a maximum period of 12 months. Those who have obtained University authority to pay fees by instalments will pay the fees subject to an instalment levy of 1.5% per month.
