The UNT Veterans Center officially opened in August 2009 and supports hundreds of individual students per year. The Center is a partner in several "veteran-friendly" initiatives on the University of North Texas campus. The primary focus of the center is to increase student veterans integration into campus life and increase outreach and student-centered initiatives that remove barriers for student veterans.
The SALUTE Honor Society recognizes American active military and student veterans who have earned an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher (graduate students must have a minimum of 3.5 GPA). See SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society for more information.
