Welcome to UMKC! We are excited for your student to join our welcoming and diverse community of UMKC Kangaroos.

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.

As you help your student to prepare for life at college, please don't hesitate to reach out to our offices with any questions you may have.
