We strongly advise prospective students to visit our campus and talk with us in person. Your personal interview with one of our Admissions counselors is a way for you to round out your profile and let us learn more about your college interests and goals. We'll also be able to discuss any questions you have about Union.
To be considered for admission, please submit the following:
- Common Application
- Supplement to the Common Application
- Personal essay
- Official high school transcript(s)
- Counselor letter of recommendation
- Teacher letter of recommendation
- Financial aid forms (if applicable)
- Standardized Testing (optional, except those applying for the Leadership in Medicine program or the Six Year Law Program).
Our school code for the SAT is 2920 and for the ACT our code is 2970.
We value students with special talents in music, visual arts, theater and dance. To have your skills considered in the admissions process, please submit your work online at www.union.edu/artsapp. We only evaluate work submitted through this website. Supplements are due by February 1.
What We Look For
We seek students with excellent grades and look favorably on applicants who exceed the minimum number of high school courses required. Honors, advanced, and Advanced Placement courses are strongly encouraged. Your secondary school recommendations are also important. Beyond academic excellence, we look carefully at your personal background and talents. In particular, we look for students who can participate enthusiastically and constructively in the life of the College.
The Admissions Committee will also carefully consider applications from students whose preparation is unusual and who, for good reasons, do not meet the norms above.
