Graduate-credit courses are offered on an irregular basis at both off-campus and on-campus locations through non-credit and/or continuing education programs at UMKC, in conjunction with various instructional divisions.

Students may enroll in such courses and earn graduate credit without being regularly admitted to a graduate program. However, application of such credits toward a graduate degree can be determined only after students have been regularly admitted to graduate study. Such application depends upon the acceptance of students and the course by the School of Graduate Studies in consultation with the respective department or division offering the degree. Students must request that the School of Graduate Studies make a determination on whether these credits will satisfy the requirements of their particular educational goals and should make such determination before registering for the course.
