New student-focused mobile app is here

Dec. 9, 2016

 

Dear UNT faculty and staff,

As you know, we’ve been focused on a number of business initiatives to make sure we’re using the most up-to-date technology to provide great customer service for our students and each of you.

I’m excited to tell you that UNT’s new student-focused mobile app is available now from iTunes or Google Play, for either iPhone or android. The app allows our students to access the things they need from UNT while on the go. Since it is integrated with my.unt.edu and Blackboard, they now have one app to access the most requested features and information. 

Current students can get notifications of their final fall grades, find their class locations each semester, learn about university events and handle other university business while on the go. They can even connect with faculty and easily access contact information for other important student services.

Students also can enable automatic push notifications to stay updated about when Blackboard grades, announcements, discussions and assignments occur. This will give faculty a great tool to help students stay on track with their coursework.    

Later this spring, we will roll out even more features that include giving them the ability to register for classes, view financial aid and pay their tuition bill within the app.

This app provides full mobility for all student functions so they can easily work from their mobile device as part of our “anytime-anywhere” strategy. Our students will benefit from the ease, accessibility and convenience of the app to stay updated on things they care about and to help them stay better connected to our university.

You can learn more about the mobile app at mobile.unt.edu. I hope you will encourage students to download the app today to enhance their UNT experience. You also can download the app to familiarize yourself with this important new tool, which includes maps with point-to-point directions to all locations on campus. 

UNT Proud,
Neal Smatresk
