Two students who were to enter the HESA program in spring 2013 were delayed in their studies because they did not meet certain requirements set by the government of Kenya in regards to the core teaching concentration for university students. Instead, sisters Mary Rose Koech and Mary Annett Namara were given provisional entrance to the Catholic University of Eastern Africa subject to completion of a required bridging courses, at which point their status will be elevated to full admission to the BA degree program.
