Non-Trad Week

UNT is dedicated to engaging our non-traditional students to enrich their journey through higher education. Are you a non-traditional student in search of resources, community, or free food?  Non-Traditional Student Appreciation Week, or "Non-Trad Week" is a full week of programming for Non-Traditional Students. It is held every Fall semester. Non-Trad Week events typically include extended departmental office hours, special food offerings, social events, presentations from UNT Departments and special guest speakers, family fun and movie nights, free tickets to a football game, professional-quality headshots, and so much more! All events are free with a current UNT student ID.
