Pay Your Confirmation Fee

Let’s make it official! Pay your confirmation fee to officially accept your offer of admission to UMKC.

A confirmation fee is required for first-time college students and transfer students interested in attending UMKC. By paying this fee, you are officially accepting your offer of admissions. The confirmation fee covers new student programming, your UMKC OneCard and other resources available to you at UMKC. 

Students admitted to master's, Ph.D. or professional graduate programs do not pay the UMKC confirmation fee, but you may be notified directly by your specific program if they require a seat deposit.

  • The freshman confirmation fee is $150 and can be paid starting in October
  • The confirmation fee covers New Student Orientation fees for freshmen (guests have a separate fee), new student and first-year programming (including Convocation and Welcome Week) and the UMKC OneCard
  • Log into your Application Status page to complete this process. You will need the email address used when you created your application and a credit card in order to complete your acceptance of the UMKC admission offer
