School Overview

The University of Central Missouri (UCM) was founded in 1871 and is located on a 1,561-acre space in Warrensburg, Missouri. The university has five colleges which include the College of Education; the College of Health, Science, and Technology; the Harmon College of Business and Professional Studies; the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences; the College of Education; and the Honors College. These colleges provide over 150 different areas of study, including UCM’s widely-acclaimed programs in criminal justice, education, and aviation.

The Honors College is open to students who apply to the program with a cumulative high school GPA of 3.5 and minimum ACT score of 25. Honors students enjoy early enrollment and one-on-one advisement by the Dean, among other perks. Honors courses also offer smaller class sizes to facilitate increased time for each honors student to work individually with course instructors on class material.

UCM has an extended campus program allowing students to study in various locations, such as online, and off-campus courses. The university also extends a welcome to those who wish to participate in non-credit granting classes. UCM boasts 35 international study programs around the globe, and is in direct partnerships with other institutions around the world, to facilitate international learning and cooperation.

The university hosts over 200 student organizations, with clubs and associations catering to a wide array of special interests. Students are invited to participate in over 20 intramural sports, and have access to an on-campus movie theater, and bowling alley.

Athletics

The University’s sports teams are part of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (the MIAA). The men’s athletic teams are known as the Mules, the women’s teams as Jennies. The students involved in the athletics can participate in a number of sports, including basketball, baseball, women’s bowling, football, golf, soccer, softball, and wrestling, among others.

Housing

Incoming freshmen and second-year students choose from 16 different residence halls to help in the transition from living at home to campus life. UCM also hosts a Special Housing Interest Program that allows students with similar areas of study to live near one-another, better facilitating out-of-classroom collaboration and learning. Almost all on-campus housing rooms are “suite-style” with only two bedrooms sharing a restroom facility. Meal plans are available with on-campus housing arrangements, with dining halls available for all on-campus students in several different residence halls.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Typically around $110 million dollars in financial aid is disbursed annually at UCM, with the average-per-student amount of scholarship or grant money being a little over $4,000. University of Central Missouri’s website offers a scholarship calculator to help students see if they may be eligible to receive scholarships. Students at UCM are also welcome to apply for federal financial aid. Recently, the university implemented a new policy allowing students whose full-time residence is in a bordering state – Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Tennessee – to pay in-state tuition.
