What else you need to know about KMTC fee structure for higher diploma courses

Now, the aforementioned is simply tuition fees….

In a nutshell, budget for accommodation money as well as food separately- it isn’t included in the above fees.

Of course, you might be aware that KMTC campuses are not enough for everyone and you’re likely to be living outside college and paying own rent as well as buying your own food.

By the way, chances are you’re already working so you don’t want to go to college fulltime.


KMTC fees structure for higher diploma – Is there HELB loan for KMTC higher diploma students?

Well, the loan is 50-50….

So, if possible, look for some of the fee (commitment fee), then try to apply for Afya Elimu Loan (or HELB itself)…you may qualify or not, depending on the information you provide when applying and your financial situation.

In other words, it is not called HELB loan- when it comes to KMTC students- though it is still administered by HELB but rather, they call it Afya Elimu Loan

Of course, you need to wait for applications to open…so keep checking HELB portal.

Otherwise, if you’re in a bad place financially, it may make sense to explore all other financial assistance options available to you including your employer’s financing for continuing education, if your organization has such.

Also, Google for scholarships that you could qualify for.


KMTC fee structure for higher diploma courses – Can I Pay in Installments?

KMTC allows you to pay the fee in 2 installments.

After all, the are two semesters in a year so you can divide the fee by two and pay the first half as you report for the first sem and the remaining half as you go for sem 2.
