Welcome to UMKC!

As a UMKC student you have access to a host of online services using your SSO and password. Visit our SSO Information page for more about SSOs. You also have access to Microsoft Office 365 for email.

To get started with any of these services, you need to know your SSO and password.

New students must activate their SSO via Pathway and set up a password before the SSO can be used. If you haven't set up a password in the Pathway system yet, you can do so provided you have the temporary "bootstrap" password that was emailed to you when you applied to the University. If you don't have the temporary password, our password assistance page has steps to Reset/Create your password.

If you have any questions or problems contact the IS Call Center via phone at 816.235.2000 or email at

Blackboard Pathway allows access to admissions, class schedules, account information, financial aid and your "To Do Lists" for all of the above.

Blackboard UMKC students receive e-mail through Office 365 for Education.
