The current global crisis has negatively impacted our students' finances, and every effort is being made to provide them with relief. As a result, UNT will not be charging students for some mandatory fees for summer sessions that support services delivered on the campus, including waiver of the Recreational Facility Fee, Student Union Fee, Medical Services Fee, Transportation Fee and Athletics Fee due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Students can take advantage of this opportunity to save money and stay on track to graduate on time. Student Financial Services can provide additional information by email at sfs@unt.edu, online chat at sfs.unt.edu or phone at 940-565-3225.

Because the COVID-19 situation has made it impossible for some staff members to continue their work on campus since what they do cannot be performed remotely, and because we recognize the importance of cultivating our internal talent, we will be advertising some critical staff positions internally prior to opening them to the public. Effective Tuesday, April 14, all staff job openings, which are approved to be opened during the current hiring freeze, will be posted for the UNT community to review for five days prior to opening to external applicants. This will allow our current employees the opportunity to review and apply for positions before individuals outside of the university. To view internal job postings:

Going above and beyond: Stories from UNT's COVID-19 response:

Kassie Grubbs, budget officer for the Division of Student Affairs, wants to thank April Barnes, Phyllis Vaughn and Elizabeth With for their incredible work throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

Associate Vice President for Budget and Analytics April Barnes was extremely helpful and patient when Grubbs needed to get up-to-speed on the situation upon her return from vacation. Barnes has been very responsive to emails and Skype messages despite having a lot on her plate. Her entire team in the budget office has been very helpful in answering questions and concerns. Grubbs also thanks Phyllis Vaughn for being an excellent resource and partner for gathering ad hoc data when requested. “She always shares tips that help me learn and grow in my own position,” Grubbs says. Finally, Elizabeth With has been tirelessly engaged in DSA's efforts to spread awareness and improve processes during this trying time. “I don't know how she keeps up, but she always does,” Grubbs says. “Her leadership is uplifting and inspiring not only during this time of crisis but also in her everyday work.”

If you know of someone who is going above and beyond, please share their information with untpresident@unt.edu so we can give them a shoutout.
