Welcome to the University of Central Missouri's Open University

What is an Open University?

UCM's Open University is an opportunity for individuals to enroll in and receive credit for courses on a seat-available basis. Student's are admitted as non-degree seeking and ineligible for financial assistance.

Who Should Attend?

Individuals wanting to grow professionally, enrich their lives, prepare for a career change, or give university life a try without becoming a full-time or part-time degree seeking student.

Who's Eligible?

  • Special Credit: If you do not fit into any of the other categories, apply as special credit. This includes general public, former students, and alumni who wish to take classes simply to learn. This is a non-degree seeking status and not eligible for financial aid.

  • Visiting College Students: Apply as visiting college if you are pursuing your undergraduate degree elsewhere but want to take classes at UCM for one semester (such as summer) that you will transfer back to your home institution. This is a non-degree seeking status and not eligible for financial aid.

  • Visiting High School Students: Apply as visiting high school if you are in high school but have permission from your school to take classes at UCM. This is different than dual credit. This is a non-degree seeking status and not eligible for financial aid.

  • Students not meeting formal admission requirements at UCM or elsewhere

Benefits?

  • No application fee
  • No transcripts required
  • Individualized Customer Support
