It is important to work closely with a counselor or faculty advisor to be sure that progress is being made toward graduation from Union College and that all requirements are being met for future transfer. Union College has numerous articulation agreements with four-year colleges. See articulation agreements.

Rutgers – The State University

The Rutgers University Dual Degree Program (DDP) provides New Jersey high school graduates with an opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree at Rutgers University by first earning an associate’s degree at Union College.  Application must be made to Rutgers University.  Once admitted, students follow a Recommended Transfer Program (RTP).  To determine the equivalency between UCC courses and Rutgers courses visit the Rutgers NJ Transfer Site.  Successful completion of an associate’s degree at UCC will guarantee admission to Rutgers as a third year student, provided that an overall cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00 has been achieved in the RTP.
