Here's what to expect after applying for admission and how to check your international application status.

Once you have been accepted and admitted to a program, move on to the next step.  

Check your MyUNT To Do List

Congratulations on your admission to the University of North Texas.  International Student and Scholar Services is here to assist you in navigating the complex United States immigration system.

Log into your MyUNT account. Your To Do list will include information and documents our office may need from you. Once you log in, click on “Student Center.”  Your To Do List will be on the right side of the page.  Click on each item listed to view more information.

If you plan to study here on an F-1 visa and need an I-20 from UNT, please read Financial Requirements for International Students to learn in detail about how much funding you will need and what type of documentation is acceptable.

Next Steps


Our office will be notified once you have been accepted into a program AND all required documentation has been submitted.  Please allow at least 5 business days for document evaluation. During this time, please continue to check your MyUNT To Do List and the email account on file with UNT for any additional information requirements.

Prospective F-1 visa students will receive an email once their I-20 has been issued.  This information includes how to receive the I-20, the student’s SEVIS ID and the UNT SEVIS school code.

All new F-1 and J-1 Students must attend a mandatory International Student Orientation to be eligible to register for classes. Prospective international students planning to attend UNT on another visa type must meet additional specific requirements.
