What is a Transfer Student?

You’re a transfer student if you have enrolled in a college or university after high school, but have never attended UCM. If you attempted college courses the summer immediately following your high school graduation, you’re a freshman applicant. If you’re a veteran or member of the military, here’s your information. 

We are here to help!

If you have questions or concerns about transferring to UCM, please contact our Admissions Office: Email or call 1-877-SAY-UCMO (877-729-8266) or 660-543-4290. We’re here to help make your transition to UCM as smooth as possible. We also invite you to review the Undergraduate Course Catalog.
