Person of Concern Reporting Form


The UNT Health Science Center cares about our students’ emotional and physical wellbeing and strives to provide all students with a campus environment that is conducive to academic endeavors and social and individual growth.
In an effort to increase opportunities to identify students of concern, a new form has been created that will capture Care Team referrals, violations of the Student Code of Conduct & Discipline, and Sexual Assault/Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) reports within one central online form. The Student of Concern Reporting Form can be found at:
Individuals referring students of concern can select the nature of their report and identify and provide context for the nature of their concern. By utilizing one central referral method, opportunities are created to gather complete and thorough information in an effort to support students in a holistic manner.
Thank you for playing a part in keeping our students safe and contributing to solutions for a healthier community!
