The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

University of Missouri-Kansas City

University of Missouri - Kansas City (UMKC), located in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri, is a comprehensive university offering bachelors through doctoral degree programs. We offer more than 125 different degrees across a wide spectrum of academic units including the liberal arts, sciences, business, education, engineering, the performing arts and nursing as well as professional programs in Dentistry, Law, Medicine, and Pharmacy. We enroll more than 14,000 students on campus and an additional 3,000+ students in dual credit programs throughout the city and region. For three years running, Princeton Review named UMKC one of the top 75 'Best Value' public universities. With our location in the heart of a thriving metropolitan area, UMKC students have great opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom and into the Kansas City community. From internships at companies that are regionally and nationally known, to research opportunities in community organizations, our location gives our students an edge. UMKC is also home to the internationally recognized Supplemental Instruction program, which was developed right here on campus more than 40 years ago to provide academic support to students in some of the more challenging college classes. To ensure you get the most out of college, there are numerous opportunities to engage with faculty in research and participate in a number of leadership development programs. From our residential life to Greek Life to a wide range of student organizations, there are multiple ways for you to become involved at UMKC and find success!
