Veterans Affairs

The UMKC Student Veterans Virtual Resource Center is a comprehensive website dedicated to providing military Service-members and Veterans with tools and resources to be successful students. On this site there is information about campus resources and GI Bill benefits, Missouri residency requirements, acquiring military transcripts and records, and the UMKC Student Veterans Organization. This site also provides links to many other Service-member and Veteran specific resources and organizations available on campus, in the community, and nationally. UMKC salutes and supports our student Service-members and Veterans and invites them to become an integral part of our campus community.

The Veterans Certifying Official in the Registration and Records Office must be contacted for certification of enrollment for the Department of Veterans Affairs. It is the responsibility of the student to contact this office if any changes are made to enrollment status. Failure to do so can result in over payments or the failure to receive benefits. The phone number is (816) 235-1121.
