Taking courses during the summer is a great way to stay on track and reduce time to
Central Missouri offers over 1,000 summer courses in varying lengths to meet the demands of students' busy schedules and to keep students on track for timely degree completion. Many courses are offered completely online, permitting students to spend the summer at home, while making additional progress towards their degree. Our online instructors are the same professors teaching on campus, so they bring the same high quality instruction to you on your computer as they bring to the students in their classrooms. Students can also complete traditional face-to-face courses in as little as six weeks. Approximately 4,500 students attend summer sessions to raise their GPA, graduate early or on time, retake a course previously withdrawn from or lessen a Fall or Spring course load. Summer sessions began Monday, May 20. For more information, please visit .
Students who are considering taking courses at OTHER institutions this summer to have this credit applied to their UCM degree should consider these items first:

As part of the Contract for Completion, this is a quick reminder that the UCM Board
of Governor's has a two year on-campus residency policy. Students under the age of
21 or who have less than 60 UCM accepted credit hours are required to reside on campus
for two years. Students are able to complete their online residence hall agreement
or their apartment application via their MyCentral account. There are limited single
rooms available for students in the residence halls and there are limited apartments
available for sophomores. Those who complete the residence hall agreement will be
afforded access to our online room assignment system and they will be able to pick
their own bed space for next year. Those who submit an apartment application will
be contacted should an apartment be offered to them.
It is important to encourage your student to keep moving forward in the process of
deciding on an academic program that fits them.

Anxiety is a normal response to stressful situations. A certain amount of anxiety
is essential for performing at our best. It is only when we have too much anxiety
that it interferes with functioning. The anxiety expresses itself through emotions, physical symptoms, thoughts, and behaviors.
If your student is experiencing levels of anxiety that is causing significant distress
or is interfering with functioning, encourage your student to seek help from the Counseling
Center. Our services are free to UCM students. Call 660-543-4060 or visit our website
at for more information.
With summer close at hand, it's time to think about the Fall 2019 semester by enrolling for classes. Fall registration is currently open for students who have not yet registered. We encouraged students to register for classes prior to departing for the summer in order to ensure an appropriate mix and amount of classes.
Fall move-in day for returning students is Sunday, August 18 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, in time for classes to begin Monday, August 19. New students who have signed up for the Freshman Kickoff will move in on Thursday, August 15 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
