Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
It is expensive, but you get what you pay for as far as dorm living, food, and academics. Parking is a little outrageous.
Claire from Parkville, MO
Super cheap esp compared to other schools...
and there are plenty of scholarships (IF YOU ARE FROM the KC Area or even Missouri)
if you are from out of state... start looking for outside aid... NOW!
Jasmine from Kansas City, MO
The food here is way better than what they gave us in high school. So you will never go hungry. The Recreation Center is great for that basketball game with your new friends, the indoor track helps for those who do not want to run in the sun or the cold, and the pool is tempting. The dorms are nice, especially if you decorate your own room.
Jerica from Florissant, MO
Get a meal plan! Yes, it seems quite expensive at a first glance, but it pays off. There's nothing better than convenience. Chic-Fil-a is right around the corner and Einstein Bros. is in one of the main lecture buildings. After freshmen year, living at an apartment like Union Hill or Longfellow with other roommates is great!
Julie from O Fallon, MO
I'm learning a lot and it's not too expensive. Yes, college is expensive, but UMKC is not as bad as other places!
Rosita from Saint Louis, MO
I believe UMKC is a great price for what education and experiences I have received here. I am not only attending classes where I am learning a ton, I am enjoying them as well. I am thankful for the location of UMKC. I am right next to the plaza, which means I can walk to something exciting. We are so close to the city it is amazing, a city is full of many wondrous things, you just have to go out and find them!
Erika from Saint Charles, MO
Can be pricey but it is worth it. Who wouldn't want to have fun while learning and pursuing a career?
