Union County College welcomes you.
We refer to this as a “Catalog”, but you can consider this your “On-Time Graduation Guide.”
Graduating on-time means earning the credits you need for a degree or certificate in less than three years. At Union County College, we are committed to helping you achieve this goal. Our faculty and staff don’t just pay lip service to our “Students are Number One” motto. We live it, we believe it, and we take pride in delivering on the promise of a great community-college education.
As you will see, the Catalog provides detailed information about what you need to know to be a successful student at Union. Please pay particular attention to the Academic Policies section which outlines academic requirements such as grading.
The information inside this Catalog will pertain to you for as long as you remain continuously enrolled here. This is also your Catalog if you’re a student who is returning to the College after an absence of more than one semester.
The “Programs of Study” section provides a step-by-step roadmap for your chosen program of study. You will find over 60 academic programs from which to choose as well as a semester-to-semester track to a degree or certificate.
Graduating with an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at Union will enhance your chances of transferring seamlessly to a four-year institution, especially within the New Jersey system. Completing all of the requirements of an Associate in Applied Science degree will increase your chances of entering directly into a career when you graduate.
You are about to begin what we hope will be a marvelously successful year. We promise to do whatever we can to help you get started on the right foot and then help you set a pace for yourself that suits your style and addresses your individual educational goals.
Thank you for choosing to be a Union County College student and for pursuing your dream of a college education with us.
Dr. Margaret M. McMenamin
