Congratulations on your admission to UMKC! We are excited to help you take the next steps on your college journey.

The Next Steps in the Transfer Process

A confirmation fee is required for transfer students interested in attending UMKC. By paying this fee, you are officially accepting your offer of admission.

Effective August 1, 2021, the transfer confirmation fee is $100 and covers new student programming and the UMKC OneCard. Students attending Transfer Student Orientation will pay an additional orientation registration fee.

To complete this process, check your application status. You will need the email address used when you created your application and a credit card in order to complete your acceptance of admission.

Each student at UMKC has a username and password they use to access various online tools. These are different than the username and password you used to apply to UMKC. 

When you’re ready to activate your username, make sure you review your electronic admission decision letter located in your application status page, because it contains your username and student ID number.

Pathway is the tool that UMKC uses to track student registration. Students can use Pathway to register for classes or check their class schedules after they are enrolled at the university. 

Set up Pathway

All students have a UMKC email address that is used for official university communications. Students must set up this email account before using and should check regularly to receive important information about their attendance at UMKC.

Pathway allows students instant access to critical financial aid information. Log in using your UMKC username and the password provided in your Admissions packet.

For detailed assistance accepting your awards, view our How to Accept Your Financial Aid guide (PDF).

Transfer students must complete a virtual orientation module before enrolling in classes. The Orientation Team will send transfer students the virtual orientation module after the admission confirmation has been accepted. Students may also find access to the orientation modules on their application status portal or at the button below. You'll use the University SSO and password you activated in Step 2 to access the online modules.

Online Orientation Modules

Transfer students are highly encouraged to attend the virtual orientation this summer. The virtual  orientation zoom session will supplement the virtual orientation module and is a great opportunity to learn more about campus, meet future roo’s, and prepare for the UMKC experience.

Admitted students should seek academic advising for assistance with enrolling in courses. All new students to UMKC have an academic advising hold placed on their student account that restricts them from enrolling. Please visit the UMKC Advising page to connect with your academic unit or department's advising office and set up an advising appointment.

Students must submit final, official transcripts for all college-level coursework attempted. Conditional admission is granted to students who have outstanding admissions documents such as official transcripts complete with all coursework attempted and degrees awarded.

At time of admission, an item is added to a student's application checklist as a reminder that the student must submit final, official transcripts.

Failure to submit final, official transcripts may result in a student being ineligible to enroll in future terms. 

Transfer work will not be posted to your UMKC academic record until we have received official transcripts directly from the transferring school or in a sealed envelope.

Please submit your official transcripts using one of these methods.

UMKC Transfer Student Network

Transfer students are a vital part of our UMKC community. The purpose of the Transfer Student Network is to help current UMKC transfer students get involved on campus, learn about UMKC and Kansas City resources, and get connected to UMKC staff and faculty dedicated to helping transfer students succeed at UMKC and beyond.
