Transitioning to college is a big step in your student's journey. And we want you to feel comfortable and confident in their decision to attend UMKC.

Our faculty and staff are focused on your student's success, both inside and outside the classroom. We provide several resources, like Academic Support and Mentoring, to empower students to accomplish their goals. Their success is our success. Partnering together, we hope to empower our students with the knowledge and skills they need to craft the career of their dreams.
