Congratulations on being admitted to the University of Central Missouri!

Now that you've secured admission, it's time to start preparing for your arrival. It's important that you pay attention to several of the details that we have on our website, which are linked from the bottom of this page.

You will not be allowed to enroll unless you attend the entire scheduled orientation. Enrollment is part of the orientation activities. This includes transfer students and visiting students as well. Your I-20 or DS-2019 document will indicate the start date of your program. Please make your travel plans for arrival in Warrensburg by the orientation date listed in our correspondence. Please see a campus map so that you can be familiar with where you need to go. Please note at the conclusion of orientation and enrollment a $50 new International Student fee will be charged to all new student's account to offset costs involved in welcoming you to UCM.

If you arrive early to campus, please bring your passport and immigration documents to the office of Graduate & International Student Services in Ward Edwards 1800. We need to photocopy the documents for your student file as proof that you are in status in terms of your immigration status. You also need to bring your passport and documents to orientation and fill out a basic information sheet.
