Welcome to the first week of classes! This week can be hectic as well as exciting–and even more hectic if you decide you want to change your class schedule. This is perfectly normal–but here are a few things to keep in mind while you decide.
Financial Aid. Your Financial Aid is awarded based on the number of credit hours in which you are enrolled. If you drop below the required number of hours, including if you completely withdraw from the University, your aid may be adjusted and you may owe the difference back to UMKC. This federal regulation is called Return to Title IV; click here for more information.
Refund Schedule. If you decide to withdraw from a class, be mindful of the refund schedule policy. The date you withdraw from a course is used to determine whether you will receive a refund of the tuition and fees associated with that class. Withdrawing from classes does not necessarily release you from financial obligations to the University. One deadline to keep in mind is Friday, August 26th—this is the last day to receive a full refund if you drop a class scheduled for the regular 16-week session; the 26th is also the deadline to receive a 60% refund for a class scheduled during the first 8-week session. Additional information regarding deadlines can be found on the Academic Calendar.
Registration Help. For information on adding or dropping courses, please click here. Additionally, the Registration Quick Guide provides step-by-step information for all students to be successful at UMKC. The last day to register via Pathway for the 16-week session is Friday, August 26. After that, you will need to submit the add/drop form (with the required signatures) to the Records Office.
