Welcome to the first step in your professional success. From accounting to entrepreneurship, management to marketing, the Henry W. Bloch School of Management is an exciting place to start your college journey. Based on your status as a student, below you will find admission criteria and requirements for our degrees.
First-time college students planning to pursue a business or accounting major are eligible for direct admission to the Bloch School. Students must meet general admissions requirements for the University to be admissible to the Bloch School as a freshman.
In order to be given financial aid/scholarships, you must be admitted to UMKC as a degree-seeking student. Apply early to be considered for the best possible financial aid package.
UMKC does accept some credit by exam. Policies, subject areas, scores and more can be found on the UMKC Registration and Records website.
Are you interested in changing your major to either business or accounting? If you have a 2.25 University of Missouri GPA, you would be eligible to declare a business or accounting major.
A Bloch School advisor can help you with the paperwork required to enter the B.B.A. or B.S.A. program.
Transfer applicants (students with at least 24 credit hours of college-level work) can enter UMKC any semester. The Bloch School requires a 2.5 cumulative GPA on all college-level course work attempted. In determining a student’s eligibility for admission, the UMKC Office of Admissions includes all attempts on all courses in the GPA calculated. The Bloch School allows for the exclusion of up to 15 hours of repeated course work in that GPA calculation.
Official transcripts from all prior institutions must be submitted to the UMKC Office of Admissions as part of the application process. Students who completed AP, IB or CLEP credits must also have official scores sent to UMKC to be considered for credit. Information on UMKC’s test credit policy can be found on the Registration and Records website.
Applicants with less than 24 credit hours are evaluated by the UMKC Office of Admissions using freshman admission requirements and college course work attempted.
