Student Pathway Help

Pathway is the main tool students at UMKC use to register for classes, view grades and update contact information, among other functions. We've tried to provide all the help you need to use Pathway while at UMKC.

Access Pathway

Your username is the part of your umsystem email. Please keep in mind that you must log in with your official username (example: or official email and not an alias.

You will use your email and password for accessing Pathway, just as you use it to access your UMKC email and Canvas, but will use your username to log on to computers in to the campus computer labs, PlanMyDegree, and Connect.

Set up your username

Your username is emailed to you when you are admitted or may be available on your application status page. 

Change, reset or recover your password

If you are still having trouble setting up your username contact the Technology Support Center.

Providing e-consent

When you first log-on to Pathway, you must provide your consent to do business with UMKC online. If you choose not to provide your consent, you will have to do all business with UMKC in person at the Administrative Center during regular business hours.

Once you have decided whether or not to grant consent, you will be re-directed to the sign-on page and you must log-on again to access your information. If you grant your consent and later wish to withdraw it, complete the E-consent Withdrawal Form and submit it to Registration and Records.
