Paying for college is stressful. Let us help you navigate your path. Learn about the diverse scholarships and financial aid resources that exist at UMKC, the School of Nursing and Health Studies and from external agencies.
UMKC offers scholarships, grants, loans and work-study jobs. We also roll out the welcome mat for our neighbors with the “Metro Rate,” which is in-state tuition for students who reside in 11 Kansas counties bordering the Kansas City area.
Your degree from the School of Nursing and Health Studies will allow you to join one of the hottest industries — health care — in the country. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates a 19.4 percent employment growth for registered nurses alone within the next 10 years. Health care and nursing consistently rank among the best jobs by U.S. News & World Report in large part because of the projected job expansion.
