Applying to the UNT Au.D. program includes an application to the Toulouse Graduate School and the submission of departmental application components. The application is open for submission now and is due January 9, 2023. Please complete the following steps in order as you prepare to apply to our program at UNT.
Step 1: Submit your application form (ApplyTexas)
Complete the UNT Graduate Application for Fall 2023 via the Toulouse Graduate School via ApplyTexas. Designate Audiology as your intended major field.
When your ApplyTexas application is complete and submitted, you will receive communication from the UNT Toulouse Graduate School indicating that your application has been received and providing you with your UNT ID number (not the same as your application number from ApplyTexas), as well as instructions for setting up access to your MyUNT Portal. Please note that this process typically takes 1 to 2 business days after submission of your application. If you submitted your application via ApplyTexas more than 2 business days ago and have not received this information, please contact the Toulouse Graduate School at (940) 565-2383 or GraduateSchool@unt.edu for assistance.
Step 2: Submit official transcripts
Please arrange for all official transcripts from all universities attended (both undergraduate and graduate transcripts, including community college transcripts) to be sent directly to:
Toulouse Graduate School
University of North Texas
1155 Union Circle # 305459
Denton, TX 76203-5017
Please do not send transcripts directly to the Department. They must be received by the Graduate School for proper processing.
When all of the application materials listed above are received, you will receive communication from the UNT Toulouse Graduate School indicating that this portion of your application is complete and that your application has been forwarded to the Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology Department for review. More information about submitting transcripts can be found on the Toulouse Graduate School's website here. Additional questions about this process should be directed to the Toulouse Graduate School at (940) 565-2383 or GraduateSchool@unt.edu.
Please note that international applicants may have additional requirements beyond what is listed here. Additional important information for international applicants can be found on the Toulouse Graduate School website here.
Step 3: Graduate Record Examination (General Test) scores
All applicants are required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) — Verbal, Quantitative, and Analytical Writing subtests — and to report all their GRE scores to UNT--Denton (ETS Code 6481). We recommend you begin taking the GRE during the summer before you intend to apply, as this will provide you with ample time to retake the exam if you choose to do so. If you take the GRE multiple times, your highest scores will be considered in your application. We consider any scores above the 50th percentile to be competitive. Percentile ranks and their corresponding numeric scores can be located on the ETS website (www.ets.org).
- Applicants who took the GRE within five years of the time of their application do not need to re-take the GRE for application to UNT. Because ETS maintains score reports up to five years after the time of testing, the applicant should contact ETS to request that score reports be sent to UNT.
- Applicants who took the GRE over five years before the time of their application will be unable to request that ETS submit their scores to UNT. Applicants who took the GRE more than five years ago and who have the original hard copy ETS score reports in their possession may submit these scores for consideration by taking the original hard copy ETS score report, in person, to the Toulouse Graduate School. Those applicants who took the GRE more than five years ago but who do not have the original hard copy ETS score report in their possession will be required to re-take the GRE and to submit the new GRE scores to Toulouse Graduate School as part of their application.
Step 4: Submit a Paragraph of Intent and a Personal Statement
Both a paragraph of intent and a personal statement are required for all applicants and must be submitted together in one document. You must download the document below and submit this document to the MyUNT Portal by clicking on “To Do’s”.
Part A: Paragraph of Intent
A paragraph of intent is required for all applicants. In this paragraph, please describe an event in your life that helped impact your decision to pursue a degree in audiology. Please note that Paragraphs of Intent will have a 250-word limit. Text beyond this limit will not be reviewed.
Part B: Personal Statement
A Personal Statement is required for all applicants. In this statement, please describe your professional goals and your preparation for graduate study in audiology.
Step 5: Letters of Recommendation
Two letters of recommendation are required for all applicants. It is preferred that these recommendations be written and sent by individuals who are familiar with your academic background and who can attest to your aptitude for challenging graduate-level academic work, or by audiologists who have supervised you in a clinical environment. Recommendations from individuals outside of academia (e.g. employers, community leaders) should be limited to one letter, and may be weighted differently based on its relevance to academic-specific information.
Letters of recommendation should be submitted directly by the recommender, to UNT Au.D. Recommendation submission link. Please note that your recommender will need your full name and UNT ID number in order to submit the recommendation. Be sure that you provide that information, along with the submission link, to your recommenders.
All departmental application materials must be received on or before the January 9, 2023 application deadline date to be considered. Incomplete application portfolios are not reviewed by the admissions committee. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that all elements of the application have been received by UNT. Applicants should check their application status and Tasks list of required Departmental application components via the MyUNT Portal.
The Tasks list will typically be updated within 1 to 3 business days of receiving your materials. More information about submitting transcripts and GRE scores can be found on the Toulouse Graduate School's website here. Additional questions about this process should be directed to the Toulouse Graduate School at (940) 565-2383 or GraduateSchool@unt.edu.
