Service members should speak with the Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their Military Service prior to enrollment, then follow these steps to use tuition assistance:

1. If you have tuition assistance, the approved authorization form from your unit needs to be turned into the Cashiers Office.

Cashiers Office
Administrative Center, room 112
5115 Oak Street
Kansas City, MO 64112

  • If you have any questions about how to establish tuition assistance, contact your unit for specific information.
  • If your unit requires a statement of your tuition and fees you can request a Paid Fees Letter from the Cashiers Office. Send the request from your UMKC email to cashiers@umkc.edu. If requested, the Cashiers Office will forward the letter as long as a name and address are provided.
  • To generate your own letter you can log into Pathway. On the menu, click Self-Service > Campus Finances > Paid Fees Letter. From there you can select the desired term. Contact the Cashiers Office with any questions.

2. Submit an Enrollment Data Form (PDF) signed by your academic advisor to the School Certifying Official in Registration and Records. You will need to submit the Enrollment Data Form each semester that you would like to use tuition assistance. Completion of this form is required in order for UMKC to comply with the data submissions required by the Department of Defense MOU.
