However, like regular students, they must meet all admission and financial requirements. Such students must abide by the policies and regulations of the University which govern the behaviour, conduct and character of students.

All documents which are submitted by a student seeking admission to the University become the property of the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton, and are kept in the student’s permanent file. Certified copies are acceptable if the student wishes to keep the originals, but in such cases, the originals must be presented at the time of registration, to the Registrar or other officials of the University. Both the original and certified copies must be presented together at the time of registration. However, the University will retain the certified copy in the student’s permanent file.
A special student is one who is a regular student of UEAB. The following categories of special students are identified:
1. Persons, who qualify for regular standing for university programmes but do not wish to register for a full degree programme, but wish to take some courses as in audit. Such persons should complete application forms as required for regular students.
2. Persons who are already university students elsewhere but would like to take some classes at UEAB. Such students should fill the “Special Student Application Form” from the registrar’s office.
3. Persons who already posses degree qualifications but wish to broaden their knowledge by taking particular courses at UEAB. Such students should fill the “Special Student Application Form” from the Registrar’s Office.
4. Mature individuals who may not qualify for regular admission to the university, but who may wish to benefit from university classes, may on rare occasions be admitted into certain courses and be classified as “special students”.
Students in this category will not be required to do quizzes, tests or examinations; but they are expected to attend all lecture sessions and do the assignments in order to get a certificate of attendance at the end of the quarter. Their work does not count toward a degree. Should a degree be required, the student must acquire admission requirements and seek regular admission. Once admitted, all courses taken under special student status must be repeated for credit.
- Students in categories under 1, 2, and 3 above will be expected to do all the work, quizzes and examinations together with regular students. The credits they acquire at UEAB may be credited towards a degree programme if they so wish.
