Applicants must meet all general admission requirements and be accepted by the UNT Toulouse School of Graduate Studies. International students must also apply and be admitted by UNT-International. Once admitted a student must then meet all admissions requirements for the IIS PhD Program.
To ensure full processing by all offices, including international admissions and scholarships, all program application materials are due by November 1 of the year preceding the fall semester of initial enrollment; applicants will not be admitted for spring semesters.
Toulouse School of Graduate Studies admission criteria include:
UNT International admissions:
Admission to the doctoral program is based on a holistic review process that uses multiple criteria related to both academic history and potential for success in the research field.
IIS PhD Program admission criteria include:
An admission committee comprised of interdisciplinary program faculty members reviews applications. Members of the committee evaluate and balance a number of factors which, when taken together, provide evidence that an applicant possesses superior scholastic ability, has the potential for success in a rigorous graduate program of research study, and will perform well within the broad context of the information field.
Admissions are highly competitive, depending on applicant qualifications and the availability of faculty to mentor doctoral students. Not all qualified applicants can be accepted. If additional information is needed to evaluate the admissibility of an applicant, an interview may be requested.
See Admissions and Application form for a complete listing of the steps required to become an IIS PhD Student.
