Online Community

During your program, you'll work toward your goals alongside a team of equally driven and intelligent classmates and be supported by experienced instructors who offer inspiring insights and challenging questions that help you grow.

A Concious Community

With UMKC Online, you're never learning alone. Our online learning space encourages you to make strong connections with your peers, professors and advisors.

Dedicated instructors

UMKC professors are deeply invested in your success and understand the unique needs of online students. Our faculty are well-versed in teaching through an online format and committed to making sure you have what you need to succeed in your studies while balancing the rest of your life.

Enlightening conversations

Discussion forums and other unique online tools help you, your classmates and professors keep a running dialogue about everything you're learning. The relationships you form will be your support network during your program and may even become friends and connections you carry with you as you take the next steps in your career.

Your online team

Online students have access to the same amazing support services as our traditional students, plus a dedicated team of online specialists who know the online learning platform inside and out. Whatever you need, we can help you find the right resource.

Graduation and Commencement

Online students are invited to the same commencement ceremony as traditional students, so you can celebrate along with your full class. At the end of it all, you'll receive a diploma that reflects the fact that you earned your education from a major university with a reputation for excellence. 


Support doesn't end after graduation. UMKC offers unique benefits, opportunities and groups for alumni from various programs and schools within the university.
