Credit transfer or intervarsity transfer is possible if you have good points that are acceptable in a University of your choice in Kenya. For private Universities, I advice you to fist start with private institutions because transferring from private to a public University might be a bit technical (though possible too)
There are private universities which will consider your application and admit you but you will have to confirm if they register distance students too.
Good luck.

By the way is it advisable for one to learn through this mode or will there be a descrimination when it comes to job searching.
I think i have a liking in this mode as it is cheap and i can atleast look for my fees at the same time study,not like the other modes of learning.
