Information for Students

As we continue planning for the fall semester at UNT, our primary focus is offering in-person classes as much as possible while still providing a safe environment during COVID-19. Fall classes will commence Aug. 24, so please register if you haven’t already. A few things for you to note:

  • By mid-July, we expect to have finalized our fall face-to-face schedule. We are in the process of actively reviewing more than 12,000 course sections, so please note that course information available now could change as we revise the schedule to benefit our students. Large classes will be online or remote and about 50% of classes will be in person.
  • We have identified additional classroom space and may extend our academic week to allow for weekend courses to teach more students face-to-face. And to safely accommodate classes, we will be engaging in social distancing, which will limit the number of students in each classroom space. These steps, among many others, will help support the health of our Mean Green Family.
  • Students should review class information using MyUNT. As we finalize the Fall 2020 schedule, details for each course section can be found in Search of Classes through MyUNT by simply clicking on that section. There you will find tabs for details, meeting information and section notes. This also is where you will see specific information on how a course will be taught.
  • Students will not be required to return to campus for classes after the Thanksgiving holiday, though those living in residence halls may choose to do so and complete the semester on campus. The end of the semester and final exams will be conducted remotely.
  • If the changes made to your schedule do not work for you, please contact your department’s academic advisor to discuss how to get the schedule you need once all changes are final.

Providing a healthy and safe learning environment is important at any time for UNT, and it is of paramount concern during the COVID-19 global health crisis. We are committed to providing updates on the latest developments and how they impact our students. Below you’ll find answers to a few common questions. We will share answers to more of your questions in the coming days as additional information and guidance becomes available.

For specific questions regarding individual offices and services provided by Student Affairs and Academic Affairs, please use this resource sheet to contact them directly.
