The Office of Admissions, in coordination with UMKC Central, processes all non-degree applications which are commonly referred to as visiting students. Visiting students apply to take classes as undergraduate or graduate students. The level of the students (undergraduate or graduate) determines the fees associated with the class and the type of credit that will be awarded.
Visiting student will have until the University Census date of each semester to make a request to change their enrollment degree level status. Changes requested after the University Census date will not be approved. Students who request a degree level change after the start of the term and prior to the University Census date will be charged a $50 late registration fee.
UMKC acknowledges that many students use names other than their legal name to identify themselves. Student can update their preferred name in Pathway
Adding a preferred name does not change a student’s official name as a part of their educational record. Your official name is your legal name. Your official name is used for financial aid, transcripts, international student I-20’s and other documents required by the university.
Preferred names will be displayed in the Pathway student center, Pathway class roster, and Pathway grade roster. Additionally, a preferred name may be displayed in other university maintained software applications such as Blackboard or Moodle.
Students who choose to take advantage of this preferred name policy are subject to the University Collected Rules and Regulations as well as the University of Missouri Kansas City Acceptable Use Policy for technology.
Information about changing your preferred name in Pathway can be found

In some situations, it is important that records or holds preventing certain actions be maintained in student records across the four campuses in the University of Missouri System. For instance, if a student is sanctioned with University Dismissal, University Suspension, University Expulsion or other sanctions/agreements that extend beyond a given campus, a mechanism to enforce such agreements or sanctions is needed. More information can be found here.
A university/system-wide service indicator or hold may be placed within the student information system (e.g. PeopleSoft) that will enforce the policy. These are placed and removed by authorized individuals on each campus and will automatically be added or removed from impacting students on all campuses.
