Texting Terms & Conditions

This page provides the terms and conditions regarding SMS messaging communications from the Office of HSC & Recruitment at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth.

The Office of HSC & Recruitment sends text messages using an SMS messaging service to communicate with students about application and enrollment deadlines, application updates, event notifications and reminders, and other important information about the admissions process. Subscribing to this service is not required to apply for or gain admission to the university. This service provides you with information via text messaging the university deems helpful and pertinent to the admission process.



Prospective students may opt-in to receiving text messages (i.e., SMS messages) by completing an information request form, indicating text opt-in on their application portal or over phone/email with UNTHSC staff.  Students may also opt-in by texting JOINHSC to 472389.


Messaging Costs

Standard message and data rates from your wireless carrier may apply. When you opt-in to receive SMS messages, you are responsible for any carrier fees such as data plan charges, text messaging charges, tolls, out-of-area roaming, and other charges. Messaging frequency per month varies based on your student status and associated actions. Check with your mobile operator for details on receiving text messages (SMS).


STOP/Opt-out Information

If you wish to opt-out of text messages, text STOP to 472389 to stop receiving text messages from the admissions office. Please note that opting out will remove you from all future text communications with the admissions office, including events you may register for in the future or application updates, unless you were to re-subscribe to such services.



Your use of the SMS messaging service is governed by the university’s Privacy Policy. UNTHSC will not ask you for, nor should you provide, personally identifiable information, passwords, or any other confidential or sensitive information in SMS messages. Except as permitted by the university’s privacy policy, the Office of HSC & Recruitment does not share your information with third parties.
