How to Apply

We welcome your application. The following will help steer you toward the admissions path that is right for you:

First, there are five simple things you need to know about the admission process:

  1. Union accepts the Common Application and the Coalition Application.
  2. We review applications holistically.
  3. Standardized testing is optional (except for our combined law and medicine programs as well as home schooled students). Our school code for the SAT is 2920 and for the ACT our code is 2970.
  4. There are fall and winter Early Decision options, as well as Early Action and Regular Decision.
  5. Personal interviews are strongly encouraged.

Now, select the type of admission you are interested in:

And remember, our friendly Admissions team is available to answer your questions at any step of the process.

We understand that there may be circumstances beyond a student's control (including, but not limited to, natural disasters, teacher strikes, COVID-19 closures) that can affect their ability to submit application materials. If you find yourself in such a situation, please contact us and we will work with you.

Common Application or Coalition Application?

We believe that students should be empowered at every step in the application process—including when they choose which application best suits their needs. Students are advised to choose the application option that they prefer to engage, or to discuss the options with their school counselor. We do not provide preferential treatment to applicants based on which technological platform they use to submit their application.
