UNT Prospective Student

TRANSFER NEWSLETTER TRANSFER CENTER | ORIENTATION & TRANSITION PROGRAMS | UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS | PROSPECTIVE

We are very excited about your interest in the University of North Texas. The Transfer Center is staffed by current transfer students, known as Transfer Ambassadors, who have successfully made the transition to UNT. We host social and academic events to promote student interaction and campus resources. We also offer a mentoring program for transfer students that wish for more one-on-one interaction to help them get acclimated to campus. The Transfer Center serves as a study lounge for students and houses free lockers that can be checked out for semester or daily use. We understand the unique needs of transfer students and work to ensure your success. If there is anything we can do to better assist you during your transfer process, please let us know. Wishing success for everyone,

The Transfer Center Team

You can meet with a Transfer Advisor in Admissions and visit the Transfer Center as part of your visit. Transfer tours are limited to 12 people. Reservations are required. If you are a transfer student but the transfer tour schedule does not work for you, you can still sign up for any of our general tours.
