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 do not simply 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 “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 opportunity to transfer seamlessly to a four-year institution, especially within the New Jersey system. Completing the requirements of an Associate in Applied Science degree will also help you to enter 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. We have a number of resources available to help you succeed from academic advising, assistance with financial aid, and free peer-to-peer tutoring in the Academic Learning Center. Your success is our success.
Thank you for choosing to further your education at Union County College as we continue on our mission of transforming our community, one student at time.
Dr. Margaret M. McMenamin
