Just $3 per credit hour beginning in fall 2019, only up to 12 credit hours (that’s $36 per semester at most). Students taking more than 12 credit hours will never pay on any credits over 12 hours.

The fee will go up every two years for a few years, but will top out at $10 a credit hour in 6 years, fall of 2025.

  • Fall 2019–Summer 2021: $3 per credit hour (up to 12 hours)
  • Fall 2021–Summer 2023: $5 per credit hour (up to 12 hours)
  • Fall 2023–Summer 2025: $7 per credit hour (up to 12 hours)
  • Fall 2025–ongoing: $10 per credit hour (up to 12 hours)

The fee is scheduled to increase so that students only pay for the improvements that will take place immediately, like longer hours and 24/7 chat; then, in the future the Libraries will continue to do more and more as the needs of UMKC students evolve.
