Parents must be authorized by their student for access to UCM's payment center. Follow these instructions to authorize additional users.
UCM uses a single sing on (SSO) to access websites and applications.
Login credentials (Username and Student ID) are sent by TSC@ucmo.edu upon admission to the student's personal email on record.
UCM's dual credit program has ample variety in course modalities available to students, including:
UCM Mobile Mule Cards are available to high school students enrolled at UCM for access to UCM's bookstore, library services, performing arts, sporting events, as well as access to the Wellness and Rec Center using your iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android. Set up instructions here.
There are a few things to know about dropping a college course:
Dual credit courses cannot be added or dropped outside of these deadlines; however, in special cases a drop appeal may be reviewed and granted. If you missed the deadline due to extenuating circumstances submit a petition to drop with a refund after the deadline.
Appeal requests are reviewed by a committee. Appeals without all requested documentation will be denied. The applicant will be notified via email of the decision and any required action for the appeal.
UCM does not send grade reports to parents or students. Students can access final grades posted in MyCentral.
Final grades are generally available the Tuesday after finals week.
Your UCM credits can be transferred to other institutions through an official transcript request or via MyCentral. Transcripts requests may also be submitted to the registrar's office in person, by mail, email or fax.
Missouri Senate Bill 997 established the seamless transferability of core college credits between all public four and two-year institutions in the state. This core transfer curriculum is known as CORE42 and it has been in place since 2018. See the CORE42 list here.
The completion of the CORE 42 at any public institution of higher education will transfer to every other public institution of higher education in the state and substitute for the receiving institution’s general education requirement. Individual courses that comprise the CORE 42 are guaranteed to transfer one-to-one among all public colleges and universities.
If transferring credits to other states, credits may or may not satisfy individual program requirements as this is dependent upon the course, major area of study, and/or specific institution requirements. See course transfer equivalencies here.
At UCM, high school graduates enrolling immediately after graduation and carrying dual credits are classified as incoming freshmen, instead of transfer students. Therefore, you will retain your full scholarship eligibility and see no negative impact on your financial aid.
Dual credit may in fact help your scholarship applications by establishing a college GPA before high school graduation. This gives you definite advantage come application time over students without college credits. Just be sure to maintain good grades!
Each tax year, the SFS office prepares a tax document, known as a 1098-T, for students that have made payments toward eligible billed charges, such as tuition. The IRS requires a valid mailing address and student social security number for 1098-T form submissions. See SFS FAQs to learn more about the 1098-T.
