General admission requirements

  • 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

Application steps

Submit online application

Apply at Apply Texas as early as possible. The application fee is $60. Students are encouraged to apply at least two months before the semester begins. (For maximum eligibility for UNT fellowships and assistantships, submit all program application materials by Dec. 1 for the following fall semester.) Late applications will be accepted for a $90 application fee.

Your application must be reviewed and accepted by both the Toulouse Graduate School and your specific degree program. Some programs have earlier deadlines.

Students from outside the United States must apply through UNT International.

Request official transcripts

Contact every college or university you have attended. Request that each send an official transcript of your records to the UNT 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 to learn about their processes for providing official transcripts.

Submit standardized test scores

Request that official test score reports (GRE, GMAT, MAT, etc.) from the testing agency be sent to the UNT graduate school. Test requirements differ by degree. 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.

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.) For more information, visit our requirements page.

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.
