Trimesters

Trimesters mean more

Our academic year is divided into three 10-week terms, with three classes each term and a winter break of approximately six weeks.

Trimesters offer:

  • flexible scheduling, with popular classes offered more than once a year
  • time for research, arts, athletics, volunteering or internships
  • the ability to study abroad in even the most structured majors, such as engineering

“Union was the only school in the country whose calendar allowed me to be a serious athlete and study overseas. In addition, because of trimesters, you get internships when no one else is competing. It’s a huge positive.” – Alumna Carly Aimi
