Admission to any programme in the university is done according to well laid down procedures. The admission options available to prospective students are as follows:-

Undergraduate Module I Students (Sponsored by the Kenyan Government): This is done through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), formerly the national Joint Admission Board (JAB), the body that does admission of students for all public universities in Kenya.

Undergraduate Module II (SELF Sponsored) Students: Because the government sponsorship can cater for very few qualifying candidates, the university gives an option for self sponsorship. In this option, the admission will be done internally at the university. To apply for any undergraduate programme as a self sponsored student, you can obtain an application form from UNES offices upon payment of application fee.
