Federation of North Texas Area Universities

The Federation of North Texas Area Universities is a consortium of three universities—Texas A&M University-Commerce, Texas Woman's University, and the University of North Texas. A graduate student entering a Federated program has access to the combined academic resources of all three universities. Benefits include the flexibility of cross-registration at member universities and the option to select major professors, advisors, and thesis or dissertation committee membership from any of the schools involved in a particular program area.
