Boot Camp

We invite incoming students in the School of Science and Engineering 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, chemistry and math 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.
