Graduate School Application

View instructions on how to complete the graduate school application by visiting the How to Apply for Graduate Programs page on the UNT graduate school website. We recommend completing this first, as it takes several weeks for all of your materials to be obtained.

Department of Psychology Application

To complete the department application process, you will need to submit an application through this submission portal. The documents and materials you will need are listed in the following steps. No email submissions (or hand delivered) will be reviewed. Only applications submitted via our website will be reviewed.

  1. Download our Application Form and complete it as described in our comprehensive set of Application Instructions. You must save your application before you upload it to our system. Otherwise, your work will be lost and all we will see is a blank application.

    • Your resume
    • Your transcripts
    • Statement of Goals for each of the programs you are applying to
    • Your GRE score report

How do I create or edit my application?
