Where do I start?

The best way to start your graduate education at UMKC is to come talk to us! Because of the unique nature of each of our graduate programs, we recommend that interested students meet with a representative from their academic program before submitting an application.

Not in Kansas City? No problem. We can work with you via phone or email to learn more about your needs and provide more information about our curriculum.
