The decision by the College of Saint Rose to close at the end of this academic year marks a sad ending to more than a century of academic history in the capital region.

As the Saint Rose community deals with the heartbreaking ramifications of the closure, Union College has reached out with an offer of support for Saint Rose students.

In order to help current Saint Rose students continue their undergraduate studies, Union is offering a simplified and expedited transfer process for anyone with a 3.0 grade point average or higher. Details include:

  • No application fee
  • Expedited credit review to quickly determine what Saint Rose classes will be accepted at Union
  • Expedited financial aid evaluation for all those who submit a CSS profile
  • No application required for students who have previously applied to Union
  • Commitment to meet the full demonstrated need of every accepted student through a combination of loans, work study and direct financial support
  • Full consideration for merit scholarships, which range from $18,000 to $30,000 for highly qualified students
  • Admissions decisions will be delivered on a rolling basis as applications are received and reviewed.

Students wishing to attend Union next fall have until June 30, 2024, to apply.

Saint Rose students can email or call (admissions@union.edu; (518) 388-6112) for more information. Director of Admissions for Evaluation, Ann Fleming Brown, is the appropriate contact.
