How to apply to UMKC


Step 1: Review the list of graduate and undergraduate degree programs offered at UMKC.

Step 2: Review UMKC admission requirements.  Graduate students should also look for any additional admission requirements on the webpage for their specific program of interest.

Step 3: Gather all your required documents.  Write your statement of purpose, take an English proficiency exam if you haven’t already, and scan all of your transcripts into PDFs. Graduate students should contact potential recommenders and update their resumes.

Step 4: Apply! Remember to upload PDFs of all of your transcripts, tests scores, and other supplemental documents

Step 5: Monitor your application portal checklist.  This is where ISAO will list any documents or information still needed for your application.

Step 6: Have any of your required test scores officially sent to UMKC and request your previous institutions send all of your official academic records to UMKC’s International Student Affairs Office.
