UMKC Catalog


A full-time student must complete six semesters "in residence." For purposes of being considered “in residence”, two UMKC summer sessions may count together to form one semester in residence (except with respect to the School's summer abroad courses). Thus, students taking five regular semesters and two summer sessions at the Law School having at least ten classroom credit hours may graduate in 2 1/2 years. A student desiring to attend a summer abroad program offered by another school should check with the Associate Dean for Students to see if the program may count as 1/2 of an in-residence semester.
