Students should apply for graduation when they register for their final semester’s course work. Requirements for graduation include the following:
A grade-point average deficiency may be removed by repeating a course or by taking additional courses that qualify as eligible electives in the curriculum.
- The student's last 30 hours must be taken at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
- The overall grade-point average in all enrollments in all University of Missouri course work must be at least 2.0.
- The grade-point average in the last enrollment in all engineering course work (CE, ECE, ME) must be at least 2.0.
Students are required to take the Academic Profile Test, which is a general education test, before they can graduate. This test is administered by the UMKC Office of Testing Services (816) 235-5820 and may be taken any time after the student has completed a total of 80 credit hours from any institution. The object of this test is to assess the effectiveness of university course work and the score is not part of the student’s permanent record.
Students are also required to complete a department exit interview in the last semester that they are enrolled.
