Although we are a Texas state-supported institution and embrace the mission of serving our own state, we celebrate the richness that makes us a school of truly international scope. Beyond the diversity represented within the State of Texas, 27% of our students come from other states and 13% from one of about 30 foreign countries. Sixty-nine percent are undergraduates and 31% are graduate students.

North Texas students have placed as national winners or finalists in a wide variety of competitions, such as the Fischoff Competition, Naumburg Competition, North American Saxophone Alliance Competition, International Tuba and Euphonium Competition, Leonard Falcone International Tuba and Euphonium Festival, BMI Composers Awards, International Clarinet Competitions, International Trombone Society Competitions, National Flute Association Competitions, North Sea Jazz Festival (Rotterdam),  the Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition, Percussive Arts Society Composition Contest, and National Organ Playing Competition.
