Students who have earned a GED and who either have not attended college or, if so, have earned fewer than 15 semester hours of transferable college work may seek admission to UNT through an Individual Review process.
Students should submit the following items to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions:
Other requirements may include, but are not limited to, letters of recommendation, a personal statement/essay, and an interview with admissions staff.
An applicant's GED certificate of completion must reflect a minimum score of 165 on each of the four exams.
Applicants who have completed 1-14 hours of college course work must meet a minimum college grade-point-average requirement of 2.5 on a 4-point scale. Applicants with scores from 145-164 will be individually reviewed and required to submit additional documents such as an essay and letters of recommendation.
Individual Review is an automatic process whereby UNT Admissions reviews the application of any student who does not meet minimum admission requirements. If you are eligible for Individual Review an email will be sent to you with information on required documentation and how to upload the documents to your my.unt.edu portal.
Factors that may help determine academic readiness under the individual review provision may include, but are not limited to, the following: school attended, courses taken, employment experience, special abilities, individual achievements, leadership activities, public service, and extra-curricular activities.
