We’re committed to helping you finance your education.
We offer many types of financial assistance, including:


Scholarships for outstanding students

We offer many merit-based scholarships to help the best and brightest find their place at UNT. Scholarships include the UNT Excellence, Honors College and Terry Scholars scholarships. The UNT Meritorious Scholarship for National Merit Finalists is valued at over $100,000.

Access for the financially challenged

The Emerald Eagle Scholars program is available to students whose family adjusted gross income is $40,000 or less. This selective program provides guaranteed tuition and fees to academically talented and highly motivated students.

Apply for financial aid as early as possible

For the best chance of receiving aid, you should submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) before UNT’s March 15 financial aid priority deadline. If you miss the priority deadline, you can still submit your application.
