3. Items needed to complete your application process:

  • Official transcripts from each college or university attended. Transcripts are considered official if they are received in a sealed envelope or sent electronically to the Office of Admissions through Parchment, National Student Clearing House or eScrip-Safe.
  • Transfer students who have earned fewer than 24 hours of transferrable college credit at the time of application must submit official high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores.
  • Any transfer student with fewer than 60 transferable credit hours must also submit an official high school transcript with proof of graduation. This is not required for admission, but is required for federal financial aid to disburse at the beginning of the semester for which you are entering UMKC.
  • Transfer students who do not have a 2.0 or higher college GPA must submit a petition for admission.
  • Students who are permanent residents need to send a copy of the front and back of their Permanent Resident card (green card). Students with refugee or asylum status need to send a copy of their I-94 with refugee or asylum status stamp.
