Hello and Welcome to the Office of International Student Affairs at UMKC. Here at UMKC, we are committed to providing culturally sensitive services of the highest quality.

We are located in the new Student Success Center on the Ground Floor (G-04) with our own entrance on the North side of the building.

As the campus office devoted to international students, we strive to create an environment that allows for successful educational and personal experiences through orientation, advising, programs and outreach.

British Students currently in the US or recent graduates from UMKC

Can you capture what US university life is like in one picture?
If so, you could help future UK students study in the US and have the chance to win £100!
The US-UK Fulbright Commission and Education USA would like to invite you to participate in our Spring 2014 Photo Contest as part of their effort to promote US-UK exchange. Your submission will allow UK students to understand what it is like to study in the US and hopefully motivate them to go!
Prize: Finalists of the photo contest will be featured on the US-UK Fulbright Commission Flickr Page. The winner will be featured on the US-UK Fulbright Commission website and will be awarded £100!

Success Story Profiles
We are also currently collecting UK student profiles to better promote US-UK exchange. Our hope is that by highlighting current UK students studying in the US, other British students will be inspired to pursue study at an American university as well.
Selected students will have their profile added to the Fulbright website and the best profile will receive £100 to help cover the cost of study in the States.
Interested? Please fill in this brief online form to apply. (
