The College of Arts and Sciences requires proficiency in one foreign language at the level of 2050 (Intermediate II) for all its Bachelor of Arts degrees and some of its Bachelor of Science degrees. The Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism requires proficiency in one foreign language at the level of 1020 (Beginning II) for all degrees. Credit for foreign language can also be useful in other degrees. Please review your degree requirements at catalog.unt.edu to see if a foreign language is required. The Foreign Language Placement Exam takes place in the General Academic Building (GAB), Room 550 at 10:00 a.m. on the last day of each orientation session. Exams for placement and/or credit are offered in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Russian, and Spanish.

The UNT Department of Mathematics wants their students to succeed and understands that students do best when they have a suitable background for each course.

If you would like to take Calculus I as your initial course and do not have prior prerequisite credit, you will be required to take the placement assessment. If your major requires Calculus I, then you are strongly encouraged to take the placement assessment.

For all students interested in being involved with the College of Music during their time at UNT - please plan to attend the music session and theory exam at 9:30 a.m. on Day 3 of orientation to find out more about music minors, auditioning for any of the performance groups, the possibility of taking private lessons, and music theory placement for the fall semester. Students who have successfully passed the theory placement exam and successfully auditioned to be a music major do not have to attend this session. Ability to enroll in Music Theory courses for the fall semester depends on placement testing and music standing. The Music Theory Placement Exam measures the basic music theory you will need to function well at the beginning of your studies in the College of Music.
