Kenyans Question How Nairobi Woman Rep. Earned her USIU Degree in a Year


On September 9th, Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris graduated from the United States International University(USIU) with a degree in International Administration.

The elated politician couldn’t hold back her joy as she took to her official Twitter account to share the news.

“Last year I set a goal and worked towards it. Today, I’m proud to join my fellow graduands as the #ClassOf2017. #USIUgrad17”, she Twitted.

According to Passaris, she started pursuing the degree only a year ago and some Kenyans have come out questioning how she could have possibly achieved the feat in such a short period.

Following the concerns raised regarding the duration of her degree program, Passaris opted to set the record straight:

“Read between the lines. I made the decision to up my game. Take 5 modules per semester to enable me to graduate this year as opposed to 2018”, she responded to one of her critics commends.

On Monday 11th September USIU clarified that it took Esther Passaris more than one year to complete her degree program.

Ms. Passaris joined USIU-Africa’s IBA program in the Summer (May) 2015 semester, having received academic credit transfer for 7 courses (21 units) based on her previous academic work undertaken at diploma level.

This constituted 14% of total degree requirements, which is within the 49% credit transfer policy approved by our Kenyan and American accrediting bodies, the statement read.
