High School/College Partnerships

Mission Statement

UMKC Students enjoying Roo Days on the quad.

The High School/College dual credit program was designed to smooth the transition from high school, shorten the time needed to earn an undergraduate degree by providing affordable access to university courses, and improve the study habits, general academic readiness and academic options for college-bound students. Students eligible for the program are able to enroll in university courses taught in their secondary districts and earn college credit while they are still in high school.
