Admission

First-Year

We hope you apply to Union College. Union offers three rounds for applying – Early Decision, Early Action, and Regular Decision.

Early Decision (ED) is binding and, if admitted, ED candidates must attend Union. We appreciate the commitment of students applying ED and favor these applicants in the process. ED has a higher rate of acceptance. ED I applications are due on November 1 and ED II applications are due on January 15, with decision notification occurring approximately one month after the deadline. Learn more about applying ED here.

Early Action (EA) allows students to apply and learn of their decision early without committing to enroll. EA applications are due on November 1 and applicants will be notified of a decision in late December, but have until May 1 to choose Union. The acceptance rate for EA is similar to the rate for Regular Decision.

Regular Decision (RD) is the third option for applying to Union and, like EA, is not binding. Applications are due on January 15 and decisions are released in late March. Applicants have until May 1 to enroll at Union.

We also offer the opportunity to apply for the eight-year Leadership in Medicine-Health Management program (deadline: Nov 1) and the 3+3 Accelerated Law Program (deadline: Jan 15).

Applying

We advise prospective students to visit our campus for a tour and personal interview. Your personal interview with one of our Admissions counselors or highly trained senior interns 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.

Student’s may submit self reported scores through the Common App. These scores will not show on the Common App “preview” screen but we will still receive them if you want your scores considered.
