University College

University College is a portal of entry with relevant support services for our exploratory/ undeclared students. Our mission is to offer every exploratory student the opportunity for success through the engagement with faculty and staff, the development of educational plans, the clarification of career and life goals, and the appreciation of the value of the core skills developed through UMKC's general education.

UCollege will contribute to the University's mission of providing a "vibrant learning and campus life experience" through the development of a focused community of faculty, students, and staff with a shared responsibility for each student's achievement of advising goals and progress toward degree completion.
