Register for classes

At UMKC the terms registration, enrollment and adding classes are all interchangeable. For all the steps to becoming a student at UMKC, see the Registration Quick Guide.

When you register for a class, you are obligated to pay for that class, unless you take action to drop that class during the 100% refund period. For more information about fees, see the Cashier's Statement of Financial Responsibility.

Consult an Academic Advisor or the Catalog, DARS, or Major Maps to help you determine which courses are required for your selected major.

Look up specific sections of courses

How to look up specific sections of courses you wish to enroll in for the upcoming semester:

  1. Log on to Pathway at http://pathway.umkc.edu.
    • Type in your Single Sign-on (the part of your UMKC email before the @ symbol) and password and click Sign In.
    • If you don’t know your Single Sign-on or the password, click on Forgot My Password.
      Note: If this is the first-time on Pathway, you must E-Consent, by clicking UM E-Consent on the bottom of the left menu. This will log you out and when you re-enter, you will have another menu option, Self-Service.
  2. In the menu on the left, click on Self-Service.
  3. Click on Class Search/Browse Catalog.
  4. Select the term from the drop-down menu.
  5. Select the Search for Classes option.
  6. Search for the course you want to take to see if and when it is offered (see the Class Search FAQ if you need assistance).
  7. Each section has a five-digit class number that you use to register for the class. It is displayed with the Section on the Schedule of classes.

    Example: Section: 0001-LEC(10007). The five-digit number in parentheses (10007) is the class number that you use to register for that section of the course.

Add or enroll in courses

  1. Log on to Pathway at http://pathway.umkc.edu.
    • Type in your Single Sign-on (the part of your UMKC email before the @ symbol) and password and click Sign In.
    • If you don’t know your Single Sign-on or the password, click on Forgot My Password.
      Note: If this is the first-time on Pathway, you must E-Consent, by clicking UM E-Consent on the bottom of the left menu. This will log you out and when you re-enter, you will have another menu option, Self-Service.
  2. In the menu on the left, click on Self-Service.
  3. In the menu on the left, click on Student Center.
  4. Click on Add a Class.
  5. You may either search for the class using the Class Search feature or if you already know the class number, type it into the Class Number box.
  6. When you find the class you want, click the yellow Select button. On the next page, check the Enrollment Requirements and Class Notes to make sure you want that section of the course. Click the yellow Next button.
  7. This places the class in your enrollment shopping cart. Placing classes in your enrollment shopping cart does not guarantee you a spot in the class until you finish enrolling in the class.
    • If later you decide to not take the classes, make sure to remove them from your shopping cart so the system does not automatically enroll you.
    • If the class is full and has a waitlist, you may add yourself to the waitlist by attempting to add the class. If there is space on the waitlist, you will be added to the waitlist.
  8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 until you have all the classes you want in your enrollment shopping cart.
  9. Once you have all the classes you want in your enrollment shopping cart, click the Proceed to step 2 of 3 button.
  10. You must now review and agree to the Statement of Financial Responsibility.
  11. Review your classes one last time and click Finish Enrolling.
  12. You will get a green checkmark for each class you have successfully added. If you do not get to the green checkmark, you are not enrolled in the class yet. The red X could be received because the class is full or because you do not meet the prerequisites for the course. You will likely need to select a different class.
