Pathway Upgrade

Beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 16, the Pathway system will be taken offline to prepare for the upgrade. During this time, the system will be unavailable for approximately three days and should be brought back online by 8:00 am, Tuesday, November 20.

The upgrade to 9.0 will only bring subtle changes to end users. The same general functionality that was available in 8.9 will be available in 9.0. As the cutover happens, all existing training documents will be updated that are online on the various supporting office websites, including Admissions, Cashiers and Collections, Financial Aid and Scholarships, UMKC Central, International Student Affairs as well as Registration and Records by Monday, November 19th.
