*New UCM students (freshmen and transfers) will be enrolled in their first-semester courses by their Student Success Advisor.

New Transfer Students: New transfer students must be sure they are fully admitted prior to enrollment. Once admitted, new transfer students will meet with Student Success Advisors to make their schedules. The individual orientation visit can be scheduled by contacting the Campus Visit Office 660-543-8569 in the Office of Admissions.
