Visiting Students

If you are not currently enrolled at UMKC but interested in taking Bloch School courses, this page provides information for you as well as information for current UMKC students (not Bloch students) interested in taking Bloch courses.

I am a:

Community Member

You may enroll in certain courses at the Bloch School without applying for admission to a degree program. This type of course enrollment does not constitute admission to UMKC or the Bloch School.

Undergraduate

Applicants who have the appropriate prerequisite courses may take up to nine (9) credit hours of Bloch courses. Students who are preparing for the CPA may take undergraduate accounting courses with approval from the department chair and completion of appropriate prerequisite courses.

Executive Education
The Bloch School’s Executive Education Center provides high-level non-degree leadership and development programs for local and global organizations and individuals.

The CFP (Certificate in Financial Planning) Board Registered Program is also available through the Executive Education Center.

Entrepreneurship Scholars Program
Got an idea for a new product or business? Check out the EScholars certificate and scholarship program.

Graduate Non-degree Programs

Individuals with a related master’s degree may enroll in graduate business, accounting or public administration coursework provided they have met the prerequisite requirements for each course. Students must provide evidence of their degree.

Community students (with an undergraduate degree) may take graduate public affairs courses as a workshop for a fee (earning no credit). They are limited to six (6) credit hours that must be taken from courses in the following programs:

Get Started

  1. Begin by filling out a visiting student application through UMKC Admissions.
  2. The student must provide proof that he/she meets all prerequisites for the course and/or completed a related master’s degree, usually by submitting a transcript. This can be emailed directly to the Bloch School.
  3. Once the student receives approval to take the course, the student is responsible for enrolling in and paying for the course online through Pathway, UMKC’s records and registration system, or in person at the UMKC Registrar’s Office.
