Union County College Admissions

Family Programs

In effort to make entry into the post-secondary world as smooth as possible for you and your student, we welcome you to not only ask questions, but register for a New Student Orientation event. More information can be found at www.ucc.edu/NSO.

During New Student Orientation, we offer a Parent/Guardian Orientation session where you will be able to have all your questions answered, from entering college to how to complete your FAFSA and check your students award.


Parental/Guardian Roles in College:
Parents are accustomed to playing an active role in their student’s education. In a college setting the roles change tremendously because the student has entered a post secondary education. A college student is considered an adult in the eyes of the law. Parents are welcome to accompany the student when meeting with the Advisor if they are invited by the student. Please note, by law (FERPA- Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) we need the approval from the student to release any information to the parents.
