Academic advising is a central part of what the Bloch Student Services office does. The Bloch Student Services Office will begin advising after the schedule is released for a given semester. You will receive an email from UMKC with your priority registration time, and is also available on Pathway.
We recommend coming in for advising as soon as the schedule has been released to ensure you have the broadest choice of classes. See below for a list of frequently asked questions to help you stay on track.
