The Student Handbook is designed to assist you in becoming acquainted with the University community as well as familiar with its policies and procedures. The information contained in this handbook will aid in your success while at UMKC–in the classroom and beyond. The topics included are divided into categories, allowing you to access closely related subjects easily and quickly. The Handbook also contains the Student Code of Conduct and information on how to be an engaged member of our community. All students are responsible for knowing the information this handbook contains.
Again, welcome to UMKC and we look forward to working with you to achieve your educational goals. Along the way, some of your most memorable and meaningful experiences will occur outside of the classroom, so be sure to get involved in student organizations on campus, volunteer your time and energy to good causes, and make UMKC your own.
