Getting Started


  • Let us know you are interested in the BAAS program!

    Call or send an email to one of our BAAS advisors. You do not have to be a current UNT student to explore how the BAAS program can meet your needs. We are best able to answer your questions if you send us a copy of your transcripts via email or fax. (Unofficial transcripts are okay for this part of the process.) If you are already a UNT student, please contact an advisor for information on changing your major.

  • Complete UNT’s undergraduate admission process

    The fastest and most efficient way to apply for admission to UNT is to complete the ApplyTexas application. Here are the steps you should follow:

    1. Go to ApplyTexas
    2. Create a profile by entering your personal information.
    3. Select "Create a New Four Year University Application" or update your existing ApplyTexas application. Select Continue to move to the next screen.
    4. Under "Target University," select University of North Texas (Denton).
    5. Under "Application Type," select either Freshman, U.S.; Transfer, U.S.; or Readmit, Undergraduate (if you are a returning UNT student.) Select Continue.
    6. Select a semester and select Continue.
    7. Under "Select School," click the "First Choice School" dropbox and choose College of Public Affairs and Community Service (PACS) and select Continue.
    8. Select the "First Choice Major" dropbox. Choose Applied Arts and Sciences and select Continue.
    9. Click Continue to my Application to get your application number and to save your input.

    By following these steps, UNT’s admission office will automatically consider all of the credits on your transcripts, including all the technical and occupationally-specific credits that other degree programs often do not accept. This is important because the number of accepted credits impacts your classification, your overall GPA, and your ability to qualify for transfer scholarships. Additional information about other requirements, fees, and important deadlines is available at UNT Admissions.

  • Schedule a UNT orientation session

    Once you have been accepted into UNT, you need to schedule an orientation session. During orientation, students choose which courses they will take their first semester, learn about UNT’s online registration system, and meet individually with an advisor to discuss their degree plan. You should bring your transcripts to orientation along with your admission packet. More information, including orientation dates, may be found at UNT Orientation.

    If you will be taking all of your courses online or at the Collin Higher Education Center, you qualify for online orientation. Please contact your advisor for more information on completing  orientation online.
