Boot Camp

We invite students taking biology and chemistry courses in their first semester to gain valuable college skills and experience before classes begin.


What is Boot Camp?

Boot Camp takes place each summer the week before the semester start and is open to UMKC students enrolled in general biology and chemistry courses.

Participants experience real lectures, real homework and real exams. It is an opportunity to practice note-taking skills, identify your best tactics for study and review test-taking strategies.

  • Get a jump start on course content
  • Meet other students in your class
  • Learn strategies and tips to succeed in college
  • Meet faculty and upperclassmen in your program
  • Learn how to navigate campus

2023 Dates: Sunday, August 13 through Friday, August 18
