All freshman applicants to UNT must submit SAT I or ACT scores. High school seniors who plan to attend UNT should take these entrance examinations at least five months before enrollment dates. See your high school counselor for more information, or contact the College Board or the ACT.
Applicants who graduate in the top 10 percent of their high school class will automatically be admitted into the university. Alternatively, you will be guaranteed admission if you:
- Rank in the next 15 percent and have a minimum 950 SAT I (critical reading/verbal + math) or 20 ACT or
- Rank in the second quarter and have a minimum 1050 SAT I (critical reading/verbal + math) or 23 ACT or
- Rank in the third quarter and have a minimum 1180 SAT I (critical reading/verbal + math) or 26 ACT.
Applicants who rank in the fourth quarter or applicants who do not meet the above requirements will have their application reviewed by a UNT admissions officer.
Freshmen applicants must also meet the following departmental admissions requirements in addition to what the university requires:
- math SAT score of 540 or higher or a math ACT score of 22 or higher
Once admitted into the university, students must take a math placement test in order to determine which level course to enroll in. The Department of Mathematics offers examinations for math placement throughout the year.
The writing section of the SAT I or ACT is not a requirement for admission to UNT. However, it is highly recommended.
