We ask that you carefully read our Group Visit Agreement prior to submitting your request.

  • It is the responsibility of the chaperones to attend all sessions with their group, including the campus tour.
  • The use of electronic devices, such as cell phones, mp3 players, or iPods, is not permitted during the visit.
  • If at any time during the visit the group is deemed unruly or unmanageable by UMKC staff, then the visit will end.
  • Cancellation of visits must occur at least 24 hours in advance. Failure to provide appropriate cancellation notice may limit future scheduling opportunities for your group.
  • If a late arrival is anticipated, it is the responsibility of the point of contact to notify the Welcome Center. In the event of a late arrival, the visit will likely be modified.
