General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Freshman Admission
Regular Admission from High School
Admission to UMKC is designed to reflect a student's probable success at the University. Since fall 1997, UMKC has admitted students according to the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education's (CBHE) category of "selective institution." Selective institutions admit first-time, full-time degree-seeking students and transfer students who have completed 24 or fewer credit hours, who attain a combined percentile score, resulting from the addition of their high school percentile rank and the percentile rank attained on a national normalized test, i.e. ACT or SAT, which equals or exceeds 120 points. Students achieving a score of 24 or better on the ACT College Entrance Examination, or its equivalent on the SAT, are automatically admitted to selective institutions.
The required ACT/class rank combinations are as follows:

ACT Composite SAT V & M
HSCRP Standard Score Standard Score

94 and above 17 800-830
86-93 18 840-880
78-85 19 890-920
69-77 20 930-960
62-68 21 970-1000
54-61 22 1010-1040
48-53 23 1050-1090
47 and below 24 1100 or higher

Admitted students are expected to have followed a college-preparatory curriculum that includes at least 17 units of credit (with each unit equaling one year in class), as follows:
Four units of English, one of which may be in speech or debate (Two units emphasizing composition or writing skills are required.)
Four units of mathematics (Algebra I or higher.) This requirement may be satisfied by the completion of courses in middle school, junior high, or senior high.
Three units of science (not including General Science.) The three units of science must include a laboratory course and must include units from at least two of the following areas: physical science, biology, physics, chemistry and earth sciences. This requirement may be satisfied by the completion of courses in middle school, junior high, or senior high.
Three units of social studies.
One unit of fine arts, to be taken in visual arts, music (e.g., band, orchestra, music appreciation, music theory), dance, or theater.
Two units of a single foreign language. This requirement may be satisfied by completion of courses in middle school, junior high or senior high.
The University seeks a heterogeneous body reflecting diversity of race, ethnicity, age, geography (national and international) and physical ability. Factors given prime consideration for admission to undergraduate study are an applicant's previous academic success and the quality of the record submitted. Applicants who do not meet the criteria set forth above may be considered by applying to the director of admissions. Additional factors include:
Extensive extracurricular activity involving school, church or community.
Outstanding talent and/or ability
Number and scope of college preparatory courses.
Evidence of marked improvement over time in the applicant's high school academic record.
Significant work experience and/or family responsibilities.
Supporting evidence in the form of an essay attesting to one or more of the above, written by the student.

Graduate Academic Regulations
The minimum academic regulations and degree requirements for graduate study at UMKC, as outlined in the subsections that follow, have been determined by the UMKC graduate faculty through representation on the Graduate Council and the Committee of Graduate Officers, and apply to all graduate programs. Individual schools and departments may adopt additional and more stringent requirements for admission, retention and degrees that take priority over these minimum regulations. These additional requirements are detailed under the various fields of study in this catalog. Please visit www.umkc.edu/catalog.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

The School of Computing & Engineering's dual-degree program recognizes that a liberal arts background, combined with an SCE degree, is a forceful combination, and collaborates with other colleges and universities to make it happen.

Students spend three or four years completing their liberal arts degree at another institution. Then they transfer to UMKC to begin their two years of engineering, computer science or information technology coursework. Upon successful completion of the programs, students will earn a degree from the original institution and UMKC. SCE believes the complementary degrees blend a powerful mix of technical and communication skills that employers notice.

SCE has partnerships with Baker University (Baldwin City, KS); Blackburn College (Carlinville, IL); Eureka College (Eureka, IL); Fontbonne University (St. Louis, MO); Maryville University (St. Louis, MO); Millikin University (Decatur, IL); Missouri Western State University (St. Joseph, MO); Park University (Parkville, MO); St. Mary's University (Leavenworth, KS).

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission Policies and Procedures
Graduate admission committees in each academic unit review applications and make recommendations for admission. Applicants must satisfy both the general campus requirements and the program-specific admission criteria for graduate study. The minimum general requirements follow.

Graduate Admission Requirements
The following are minimum requirements for admission to graduate study in all UMKC graduate programs except the combined R.N. to M.S.N. option in the School of Nursing:

A bachelor's or first-level professional degree from a regionally accredited institution.
A satisfactory academic record.
For program-specific requirements, applicants should consult the pertinent degree program listing in the catalog or on the program website.
Many UMKC graduate degree programs require satisfactory scores from either the Graduate Record Examination (general and/or subject tests), the Miller Analogies Test or the Graduate Management Admissions Test. Other academic units may require other national examinations.

Graduate Study Application Procedure
In general, applications for admission to graduate study should be obtained from and returned to the Admissions office. Because some academic units have special application requirements, applicants requesting application materials should be sure to specify the program to which they plan to apply. Admission to a degree program is subject to the recommendations of the graduate faculty in the degree program area and the dean of the academic unit in which the program is offered. Graduate admission decisions by the academic dean or designated representative are final.

Applicants must submit an official transcript from the school where their bachelor's degrees were obtained. Unless the transcript of the degree-granting institution includes the complete record of undergraduate work taken at all other schools, an official transcript from each of the other institutions also must be supplied. In addition, applicants must submit an official transcript from each school where other coursework has been taken or degrees have been obtained after the bachelor's degree. All credentials submitted in support of the application for admission become UMKC property and will not be returned to students, nor will UMKC release copies of such credentials to a third party.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission requirements to the individual degree programs are listed on http://sce.umkc.edu/future-students/graduate/admissions-requirements/. Interested students are encouraged to read the requirements and contact the School of Computing & Engineering with questions about specific situations.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International Students
Use the international application form and return the application, along with required supporting materials, to the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Office of International Student Affairs.

A minimum score of 80 on the TOEFL exam or a minimum 6.5 on the IELTS is required for international students without prior U.S. degrees.

Residency Requirements

Information about residency requirements and process to petition for Missouri residency are listed at www.umkc.edu/residency.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
