You can make it happen

Earn more money. College graduates earn about $1 million more in their lifetime — about $23,000 more per year — than people without a bachelor’s degree.


UNT offers the most affordable research university education in the state, according to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Above the rest for thousands less

UNT's new Eagle Express Tuition Plan lets you lock in your total academic costs and save up to $4,000 when you graduate on time. As a transfer student, you qualify for a graduation incentive based on the number of hours you transfer to UNT and how soon you graduate.

We offer many scholarships

Once you’re admitted to UNT, you’ll be evaluated for some transfer scholarship awards based on your admission and scholarship applications. Complete the General Scholarship Application by June 15 to be considered. Transfer scholarships only are awarded in the fall semester.

  • UNT Texas Transfer Scholarships are available to students transferring from a Texas community college or an accredited Texas university with 45 or more credit hours. The scholarship is renewable for one additional consecutive academic year.

General Academic Scholarships

Additional academic scholarships are available through the General Scholarship Application. You must be a fully admitted transfer student with a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA at the end of the most recent fall semester. The application deadline is June 15.

There are many department-sponsored scholarships available. Departments administer their own scholarship processes for donor-funded scholarships. Check with your academic department for details.

Maximizing your financial aid

Apply for financial aid well in advance of the priority deadline (March 1 for fall applicants, Aug. 15 for spring applicants and Feb. 15 for summer applicants).

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is available each January for the upcoming academic year. To speed the process, request your PIN and review necessary documents ahead of time. The earlier you apply, the more likely you are to be considered for assistance.

To learn how to apply for financial aid or transfer your application data, call UNT’s Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships at 940-565-2302 or 877-881-1014 several months before transferring to UNT.
