In addition to the steps for admission listed on the traditional admissions page, international applicants should review the following information for other application requirements and priority dates.

You should verify with your academic department for program-specific application materials that may be required.  Departments may have requirements such as personal statements, letters of reference, auditions or portfolios that must be sent directly to the department.  Review the list of academic programs and program websites for more information.

UNT is still accepting applications for the Fall 2020 term for many programs. International students should have applications submitted by June 15, 2020 for consideration of visa processes. Individual programs may have varying deadlines and requirements so please check with your department.
