2 Request official transcripts from all colleges and universities you have attended.

Contact the registrar’s office at each institution. Request that each send an official transcript of your records to the Toulouse graduate school.

Transcripts are required from every college or university you have attended and must arrive by the application deadline. Contact the colleges and universities you have attended about their processes for providing official transcripts.

The transcripts must show you have earned a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution and earned the required grade point average:

GPA requirement for UNT consideration:
2.8 GPA or higher on your undergraduate degree OR
3.0 GPA on the last 60 hours of your undergraduate degree OR
3.4 GPA on a completed master’s degree.

Students not meeting GPA requirements may be eligible for admission under certain conditions or if they are seeking a second bachelor’s degree. See the Graduate Catalog for details.

3 Submit standardized test scores

Test requirements are program specific. Some programs may provisionally admit students for one semester prior to submission of standardized test scores. Others have requirements that substitute for test scores. See the Graduate Catalog for details.

Request that official test score reports (GRE, GMAT, MAT, etc.) from the testing agency be sent to the Toulouse graduate school. The UNT school code for the GRE is 6481. The UNT school code for the GMAT is 6DP-8M-55. The UNT school code for the MAT is 2255.

4 Submit additional documents required by your specific program

Send any additional program-specific application materials directly to your department. (Departments may have requirements such as personal statements, letters of reference, auditions or portfolios.)

Additional documents are not required for you to be admitted for a second bachelor's degree, teacher certification or Graduate Academic Certificate, or as a non-degree graduate student. Apply as a non-degree student if you are only taking courses to improve your knowledge. Non-degree students may change to degree-seeking, although course credits might not transfer to your degree program. As a non-degree student, you may not be eligible for financial aid.
