  • Interviews

    Union encourages an interview as part of the application process. An interview enhances your application by showing your interest in Union and allowing us to hear more about your academic and extracurricular pursuits. It is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and to hear about the exciting experiences that await you at Union College.

    In the fall, interviews are typically conducted by a senior intern–one of 12 student leaders in their final year at Union who is eager to learn about you and share their Union story.

    Online interviews are available for high school seniors through January, but should be completed by the following deadlines:

    • November 15: Early Decision I, Early Action, Leadership in Medicine
    • January 31: Early Decision II, Regular Decision, 3+3 Accelerated Law

    Appointments are offered Monday-Friday and select fall Saturdays. Registration is available up to 48 hours in advance:

    Note: Prospective transfer students may request an interview year-round by emailing Interviews for high school juniors will open in May.
