ASLP Student Resources:

 


Learning to operate in a new and unfamiliar environment is challenging, especially if you don't know who to ask or where to go for help. Here are some resources that will help you make a smooth transition to life as an ASLP student.

Please contact UNT Student Financial Services (940-565-3225 or sfs@unt.edu) for complete information on tuition and fees details. 

Caring is an integral part of the UNT mission statement because it's one of the most important things we do as an institution. We show #UNTcares through the personal investment made by faculty and staff in the success of each student as well as the broader UNT and Denton communities.
