    • 3.00 GPA in the undergraduate degree for admission to the Master's program;or
    • 3.50 GPA in the undergraduate degree for direct admission to Doctoral programs;or
    • 3.50 GPA in Masters-level studies for admission to Doctoral programs.

    Students not meeting GPA requirements may be eligible for admission under certain conditions or if they are seeking a second bachelor's degree. More information is available in the graduate catalog.

  3. Submit standardized test scores (GRE, GMAT, MAT, etc.) to us.

    Request your score to be sent directly to UNT when you take the test. The UNT school code for the GRE is 6481. The UNT school code for the GMAT is 6DP-8M-55. The UNT school code for the MAT is 2255.

    Test requirements are program specific. Some programs will provisionally admit students who have not yet completed standardized tests.

    Test scores can take up to four weeks to be sent and received by UNT. The GRE revised General Test will begin in August 2011. Learn more about this as it can affect your admissions process.

  4. Submit any additional degree-specific admissions requirements directly to the department offering the degree.

    These may include personal statements, letters of reference, entrance examinations, interviews, auditions, portfolios or other program-related material.

    Apply as a non-degree student if you are only taking courses to improve your knowledge. Non-degree students may change to degree-seeking, although course credits might not transfer to your degree program. As a non-degree student, you may not be eligible for financial aid.

    To be admitted for a second bachelor's degree, submit a second bachelor's degree application and all official transcripts.
