MIC Program

What is the MIC Program?

The MIC program is a partnership between the University of Central Missouri, Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, Metropolitan Community College, and more than 50 Kansas City businesses. It provides motivated students with career-ready skills and the opportunity to graduate with a bachelor's degree two years post high school, and with little to no debt. MIC students have access to state of the art facilities at The Missouri Innovation Campus, which opened its doors in 2017, and it is reshaping the way students experience education and innovation.

The MIC students graduate with:

  • A bachelor's degree, two years after high school.
  • Little to no student debt.
  • Applied experience through paid internships.
  • Highly sought-after skills for high-paying careers.

A Degree in Less Time 

 Beginning their junior year of high school, students in the MIC program take specific college level classes from UCM and Metropolitan Community College alongside their high school classes. This means upon graduation from high school, students will not only have their diplomas, but an associate’s degree in three of the six MIC Programs.
Best of all, after high school graduation, MIC students are on an accelerated pathway to complete a bachelor’s degree from UCM in only two years, allowing them to enter the workforce and start their career sooner.

  • First Two Years of Tuition Paid
  • Student Employment
  • Institutional and Departmental Scholarships
  • Low-Interest Loan Programs
