This summer, UMKC will offer classes in more than 90 areas of study, compared to just 76 last year.
The additional offerings aim to attract more students by increasing the availability of summer courses.
UMKC has marketed the courses with the slogan: “Catch up, stay on track for graduation or even get ahead.”
The summer program will also have options for current, new and prospective students, including students in Kansas City over the summer who would like to take advantage of the expanded course offerings.
In addition, the metro rate scholarship has been expanded this year to include the Kansas counties of Atchison, Douglas, Franklin, Jackson, Jefferson, Osage and Shawnee in addition to Johnson, Wyandotte Leavenworth and Miami counties. The scholarship allows residents from these counties to attend UMKC for the same price as Missouri residents.
The summer sessions will start May 21 and run in four-, five- and eight-week sessions. The dates are as follows:
- First five-week session: May 21-June 22
- First eight-week session: June 4-July 27
- First four-week session: June 4-Jun 29
- Second five-week session: June 25-July 27
