Students wanting to enter the Forensic Science Program must first be accepted into the university. After being accepted into the university, students must then apply for acceptance into the Forensic Science Program. A limited number of students will be considered for acceptance as incoming freshman. Students can also apply to the program after their first semester at UNT or, in the case of transfer students, once they have completed 30 hours of college level work. All students must meet the math requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences before being admitted into the program.

Important Information Section
Please read before filling out application form
Students who are considering this degree should be aware that employment in a forensic related field requires an extensive background check. Components of this check may include any or all of the following:
·         Background Checks (criminal and driving records)
·         Polygraph Tests (checking unethical behavior)
·         Credit Checks (issues relating to excessive debt or defaults)
·         Drug Tests (to check for drug usage)
·         Interviews of Friends and Family
If there are problems in any of these areas, a career in forensic science may be unlikely, and the student may need to consider a different major. If you have questions about this, you should contact the agency or lab in which you hope to gain employment and request their policies.
Background checks may also be required for the internships offered through this program. If you have any questions, please contact the program director.
