    Thank you for your interest in our world-class degree program. The following page contains information about entering the Applied Technology & Performance Improvement (ATPI) doctoral program at the University of North Texas. Admission into the ATPI doctoral program is a simple two-step process:

    Step 1: Admission to the Graduate School

    Information for admission to the Graduate School can be found at through the Toulouse School of Graduate Studies.

    You have two options for admission into the graduate school:

    • Graduate Non-degree (exploration option)
    • Program Specific Application - ATPI (streamline option)

    If you have questions about this step, please contact the Graduate School or the ATPI Administrative Assistant.

    Department of Learning Technologies
    3940 N. Elm, Suite G150
    Denton, Texas 76207
    Phone: (940) 565-2057
    Fax: (940) 565-4194

    Step 2: Admission to the ATPI program

    Acceptance into the Toulouse School of Graduate Studies does not guarantee acceptance into the ATTD doctoral program.

    The graduate faculty of the ATPI program determines the full-acceptance of all students into the program. This determination is made through an admissions portfolio. The portfolio is your opportunity to professionally present yourself to the entire graduate faculty. It has been our experience that this portfolio is one of the best reflections of a person's readiness to enter the ATPI doctoral program.

    Program Application Deadlines

    • Doctoral students must have their COMPLETED portfolios turned into the ATPI office no later than May 1st for Fall program admission.
    • Doctoral students must have their COMPLETED portfolios turned into the ATPI office no later than November 15th for Spring and Summer program admission.

    The admission portfolio is completed through the use of two documents:

    1. The Admission Checklist: This document provides a list of material that must be provided in your admission portfolio.

      Letters of recommendation must be sent in a sealed envelope to:

      ATPI Doctoral Advisor
      University of North Texas
      Program ATPI - Doctoral
      3940 N. Elm, G150
      Denton, TX 76207
    2. The Teaching/Training Experience Form: This form will be included in your portfolio.

    There are no formal formatting requirements for the applicant's admissions portfolio. However, we do ask that you organize the portfolio in the order described in the admissions checklist document. Additionally, please make it easy to read and understand.

    The admissions portfolio must be completed and submitted for graduate faculty within 90 days of provisional admission to the ATPI program. If you have not completed and submitted your portfolio within this time period you will be denied program admission.

    If you have questions about this step, please contact the ATPI Administrative Assistant or the ATPI Doctoral Advisor.

    Department of Learning Technologies
    3940 N. Elm, Suite G150
    Denton, Texas 76207
    Phone: (940) 565-2057
    Fax: (940) 565-4194

    After you have been formally admitted into the Applied Technology & Performance Improvement doctoral program you will sit down with the program coordinator to help you determine your graduate advisor and to help you with the next steps of your doctoral program.

    Thank you for your interest in our doctoral program,
    Dr. Kim Nimon, Doctoral Advisor
