Continuing UMKC Students

Students currently enrolled at UMKC must have a UMKC cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above.

The above-mentioned admission requirements are “target criteria.” While priority consideration will be given students who meet or exceed the requirements, the Honors College Admissions Committee takes into consideration the totality of each student’s application, with emphasis on academics and civic engagement. UMKC wants Honors College students who will be leaders in the classroom and in all aspects of campus and community life. Accordingly, even if you do not meet these criteria, feel free to apply for admission to the Honors College. Applications are especially encouraged from students who have a strong record of community engagement and are highly motivated to succeed academically.

Priority deadline for applications is January 15 for the fall semester. Applications submitted after these priority deadlines may also be considered on a space‑available basis. The final application deadline is August 1 for fall semester and November 30 for spring semester.
