UNT Student Application

Any student enrolled in classes at the University of North Texas may apply to volunteer at KNTU.

  • Some students, such as those in the Department of Media Arts (MRTS or CBCM majors) or the Mayborn School of Journalism may earn practicum course credit for their work at KNTU; students in other majors throughout the university may be able to work with their academic advisors to also receive some form of credit toward their degrees.

Please fill out the form below to indicate which volunteer / practicum position(s) you are interested in, and how we can contact you. We’ll review your application and contact you to set up an interview and/or audition. Please fill out the form completely — including your full name — and you could soon be on your way to entertaining or informing listeners across Denton/Dallas/Fort Worth.

Note to all applicants:

KNTU is an extra-curricular activity open to all students at the University of North Texas. While some students do receive practicum credit for their work at KNTU, volunteer / practicum positions at KNTU are NOT labs connected with any course. In other words, no student will be placed in a KNTU position simply because they have registered for a particular course.

Rather, all students who apply for a volunteer / practicum position will be required to audition for that position, and, in some cases, take a test to demonstrate their knowledge of basic background information necessary to perform tasks in certain departments (i.e., knowledge of current events for the news department).

KNTU is a very visible representative of the University of North Texas. While continuing to provide an industry standard learning environment for students who are starting out in broadcasting, KNTU's mission also includes providing listeners throughout Dallas/Fort Worth with the highest level of programming possible from a professionally run student radio station. This is similar to other highly visible UNT activities, such as the lab bands and inter-collegiate sports, in that students who participate in those activities must try out and demonstrate their ability to perform at an acceptable level.

By checking the boxes below and submitting this application, you agree to the following:

 To perform the duties required for the volunteer / practicum position(s) for which you've applied.

 You understand the volunteer / practicum position(s) will run from the first day of the semester through the last day of final exams. (There is NO Summer I nor Summer II, it's ALL ONE SUMMER SEMESTER at KNTU.)

 You agree to become familiar with and comply with the policies and procedures of KNTU.

 You understand that if you don't show up for your scheduled shift (or find a trained substitute) and complete your scheduled work on time, you may be removed from the KNTU volunteer / practicum staff immediately, even if this means failing the associated practicum.

 You agree to work two phone bank shifts during the KNTU Pledge Drive.
