Time and time again, our students tell us their visit was the deciding factor in their choice to join us at UMKC. We have several visit options created just for our transfer students — including virtual visits!

Visits for Transfer Students

As a transfer student, you likely have questions and concerns different than a first-time college student. That’s why we created visits especially for you — to take the guesswork out of the transfer process.

During a transfer visit, we’ll answer these questions and more:
  • Majors and minors
  • Scholarships specifically for transfers
  • How to optimize your transfer experience
  • Next steps after admission
  • Anything else you can think of!

Prepare for Your Visit

Although it isn't necessary, it is beneficial for you to do research on transferring to UMKC.

For many of our visits, we ask that you provide your transcripts so we can better serve you. You can upload unofficial transcripts to the registration portal when you schedule your visit.

Please check the weather leading up to your transfer visit. Any severe or inclement weather that may cause the UMKC campus to close will result in the visit being canceled.

If you need to cancel or reschedule your visit, please email the Transfer Student Center.
