After considering all of your college options, and perhaps after having visited the campus and interviewing, you may decide that Union is your first choice. In that case, you should consider an Early Decision application, which is favored in the admissions process. Early Decision candidates commit themselves to attending Union. To apply Early Decision, Union should be your first choice among all schools you are considering. If accepted, you are obligated to attend the College and to withdraw all applications to other colleges and universities upon acceptance to Union.
Early Decision applications are considered at two times during the year:
- Early Decision I. Application and credentials are due by Nov. 15, with most decision letters mailed by Dec. 15.
- Early Decision II. Application and credentials must arrive by Jan. 15, and most decision letters will be mailed by Feb. 1.
Remember, students applying under Early Decision have made a commitment to come to Union if admitted.
To be considered for Early Decision, applicants must also submit the Early Decision Agreement [PDF].
If you are not admitted under the Early Decision plan, your application may be transferred to the regular applicant group.
