University of North Texas-Concurrent Admissions Agreement


In order to facilitate the process of student transfer, the University of North Texas (UNT) and Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) have agreed to the following Concurrent Admissions Agreement.  The University of North Texas System Center at Dallas is a part of the University of North Texas and thus, any reference to UNT includes the System Center at Dallas.

Dallas County Community College District students who meet University of North Texas admission requirements or complete the Associate of Arts/Science degree, will receive automatic admission to the University of North Texas. A student may apply for concurrent admission status at the time of first enrollment at any DCCCD institution, or at any time thereafter when enrolled at DCCCD, by completing a UNT Concurrent Admissions Application. The student’s formal application to UNT will be activated when the student has completed the transfer Texas Common Application for Admission (paper or electronic version) within 12 months of anticipated enrollment at UNT and when the university determines that the student meets the UNT transfer admission requirements.

The institutions will work together to provide appropriate transfer guides utilizing the Texas Common Course Numbering System to identify the courses to be completed at DCCCD that will transfer to UNT. Special attention will be given to courses that will apply toward pre-requisites or requirements for a major at UNT.

Concurrent admission students who have a TexShare card will have access to the University of North Texas Libraries, including the virtual library at the University of North Texas System Center at Dallas.

Concurrent admission students will have the right to purchase tickets to athletic and other selected events on the UNT campus at the student guest rate.

The University of North Texas will provide additional opportunities for Dallas County Community College District students to learn about UNT scholarships including those offered at the UNT System Center at Dallas. The University will host events for DCCCD Rising Star Scholars and others interested in learning about how one can afford to complete a bachelor’s degree.

UNT on-site admissions events will be held at all DCCCD colleges at least once a year.

UNT will provide DCCCD institutions with annual data reports that include information about the academic performance of former Dallas County Community College District students enrolled at the University of North Texas as permitted under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

DCCCD and UNT will develop a smooth transition for qualified students wishing to enter the UNT Honors Program and UNT. Acceptance to the UNT Honors Program requires a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or better on all college work. The UNT Honors Program will work with DCCCD to determine an appropriate number of semester hours, up to 12 hours, of honors credit with a grade of B or better earned at DCCCD that will count toward the 24 hours required for Honors Program recognition upon graduation from UNT.

DCCCD campuses will agree to provide space for UNT to teach upper-level and graduate courses on their campuses when space is available and requested.

Faculty and administrators for the Dallas County Community College District, University of North Texas, and the University of North Texas System Center at Dallas will meet annually to assess the program and develop additional possible options to this agreement.

UNT officials will work with DCCCD officials to find ways to share information about students enrolled at UNT who could have sufficient hours to receive an associate’s degree from DCCCD. 

This agreement shall become effective Fall 2001 and shall remain in effect until terminated by either party. Termination can be processed when either UNT or DCCCD give written notice to the other institution 180 days prior to the requested termination date. 

In witness whereof, the authorized representatives of the parties have executed this agreement on this the 25th day of June, 2001.

University of North Texas
