The University of North Texas at Dallas
began in 2000 as a Dallas
extension of the University of North Texas
, offering upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in fields such as education, business, criminal justice, applied arts and sciences, computer science, information technology and mathematics.
Enrollment on the UNT Dallas Campus has grown at an average annual rate of 14 percent per year and reached the full-time equivalent
of 1,000 students during the spring semester of 2009. That figure, 1,000 FTE, had to be met under the terms of the legislation that created the school before it could separate from UNT. In April 2009, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board certified this enrollment and granted UNT Dallas status as an independent general academic institution. Now, the freestanding school is known as the University of North Texas at Dallas, the first public university within Dallas city limits. Freshmen and sophomores are being admitted for the first time in the Fall of 2010. In the summer of 2009, construction began on the second building on the school's campus near the intersection of I-20 and I-35E.
