Does this mode of learning suit me?
If you are in full time employment, have family commitments, live in a remote area, are taking other courses on a full time basis or would like to pay for the number of modules that you can afford each time, then yes, this mode of learning adapts well to your learning needs.

How do I apply?
All applicants fill in and submit applications as instructed in the Maseno University eCampus web site http://ecampus.maseno.ac.ke/application/apply_now.php. The applicant will immediately receive an e-mail acknowledging receipt of their application.
How do I register?
Registration for modules is done online at the Maseno University eCampus. Students are required to register for the number of modules they desire to take at the beginning of each Semester.
What is a module?
A module refers to an examinable unit for which a student individually registers and pays. One unit course is therefore equivalent to one module.
What is the maximum number of modules that I can take per semester?
This varies from programme to programme.
What are module levels?
A level is equivalent to a year of study in the corresponding fulltime programme in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year.
Under graduate eLearning modules are offered in Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 which are equivalent to year 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the regular programmes. Post-graduate programmes are offered in Levels 5 and 6.
What is the mode of course work delivery?
Most under-graduate and post-graduate modules are fully online. A number of Continuous Assessment Tests (CATs) are also taken online. Certain modules are blended, including short periods of face-to-face contact with lecturers. All students registered for eLearning modules take sit-in examinations at the end of each semester.
Can I skip the Online Orientation to eLearning?
No. This is a mandatory prerequisite for all programmes offered at the eCampus, taken once, upon registration for the first eLearning modules. It usually runs for 1 week.
Where will I sit my Examinations?
Examinations and practical aspects of the module will be conducted at specified centres in Nairobi, Mombasa, Eldoret and Kisumu. Only students who are duly registered for individual modules will be allowed to sit examinations. More details on Maseno University Examination Rules and Regulations are available on the university web site.
