How and when to apply for transfer admission to UNT
Who can apply as a transfer student?
U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, or undocumented immigrants applying for admission
to UNT for the first time, who have earned college credits from another school of
higher education after graduating high school and have not earned a four-year degree.
Submit separate, official transcripts from every community college and/or university where you've enrolled in classes.
If you've earned fewer than 15 college credit hours and submit an official transcript
from your high school. SAT and ACT scores are encouraged but optional.
Admissions Update: Students without an SAT or ACT score can still join the Mean Green Family. Simply
apply via ApplyTexas or the Common App and we will holistically review your application based on your GPA, class rank and
other academic criteria.
*You should apply and be admitted by December 1 for the Spring term or June 1 for the Fall term to be eligible for the Transfer Excellence Scholarships.
You must submit your application and application fee payment by the priority date
to be eligible for on-time registration. Applicants who miss the priority date will
register during Late Registration when classes are less plentiful.
Transfer applicants may apply up to a year in advance of their expected term of enrollment.
It's best to apply as early as possible for the best opportunities for scholarships,
orientation dates, and on-campus housing options.
When are admission decisions made?
Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. You'll be informed of your admission
status via a letter in the mail, an email, or your my.unt.edu account once we've received and processed your complete application and all required
UNT highly recommends electronic document submission whenever possible. Mailed transcripts
need to be sent in an institution-sealed envelope to the Office of Admissions. See
our mailing address. If you're having difficulty obtaining official documents, please contact us at email@example.com for assistance.
We recommend you submit your official high school transcripts electronically to UNT
directly from your high school’s approved service (i.e., Naviance, TREx, CommonApp,
etc.) or emailed as a PDF from your high school's Registrar.
College or University
We recommend you submit your official college or university transcript(s) using one
of the following approved systems:
National Student Clearinghouse
Standardization of Postsecondary Education Data Exchange (SPEEDE)
You are not required to send letters of recommendation or an essay with your application
unless additional information is requested of you. If an essay or letters of recommendation
are required, you will receive an email with information about the required documentation
and how to upload the documents to your my.unt.edu portal.
