Curriculum changes are continuous but do not affect the continuing student. Each student is supposed to follow the curriculum he/ she finds on first registration at the university.

Every student is allocated an Academic Advisor by their Academic Department, who guides them all through their academic life in the University. Any queries on sequencing and eligibility to register for any course is directed to the Academic Advisor.

A student who wishes to get a letter of recommendation or completion should write to the Registrar (Academic Affairs) requesting for the same. The student then picks up the said letter within 24 hours.

Every student is required to have a copy of the KeMU Students’ Academic Handbook and Code of Conduct which guides him/ her throughout their academic stay in the University. This is available here. (Click here to download a copy)
