We are #RooReady for fall semester classes. Learn more about the UMKC response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and get the latest updates and safety information from the CDC.

What’s Next?

You’ve received a letter telling you that you’ve been admitted to one of our degree programs and are now officially a Bloch School student.

Congratulations! You probably have lots of questions and need to get lots of things done before you start classes. This page is a guide to get you up and running in no time.

See an Advisor

As a new student, you are required to be advised before you’ll be able to register for classes. You can find all of the Bloch School’s vital advising information—where, when, who—here.

Get Your Books

The UMKC Bookstore carries all the books for all your classes.

Set Up Your UMKC Email

Your UMKC email is how the Bloch School and UMKC will communicate with you about registration times, internships and so on. It’s vital that you check this email several times per week, and you can check it anywhere you have Internet access.

Brand new UMKC students cannot personalize your email account until you have registered and made an initial payment for a class. Start the process.


Students enroll through the Pathway system. Instructions on using Pathway can be found on the Registrar’s website.

Pay Fees

You know you have to pay your tuition and fees to stay in class. The UMKC Cashier’s website is full of useful information such as when, how and where to pay.

Get a Parking Pass

Street parking is free, but not always available. You can learn more about the alternatives at UMKC Parking Operations’ website.

Get a Student ID

UMKC’s One Card office is where you will get this. Please note that you must have made at least one payment toward your fees owed before an ID card can be issued.

Get Where You Need To Go

This page will give you directions to campus as well as a downloadable campus map.
