Registration for fall is currently open. Students are encouraged to register now to create their ideal schedule. Payment for fall classes is not due until August 6. The application to Union is free and can be found at www.ucc.edu. Fall classes start on Wednesday, September 2.

The College offers more than 60 programs of study including supply chain, cybersecurity, criminal justice, education, and more. For high achieving students, the American Honors program provides one on one academic and transfer advisement. For students interested in athletics, NJCAA sports teams include soccer, baseball, wrestling, lacrosse, and more. The College boasts an active Student Government Association, student clubs and organizations, and a chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two year colleges. Graduates of Union County College enjoy easy transfer to four-year colleges or universities.

Students need not wait until fall. This summer, Union is offering a wide array of online classes to accommodate both enrolled students and visiting students, those who attend college elsewhere but are interested in taking an affordable summer class and transferring the credits back to their home institution. Available courses include lab sciences, math, English, psychology, history, Spanish, and more.

“Even before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the College’s budget included no tuition increase for our students. We provide a critical service to the residents of Union County: an affordable, accessible, and excellent education. We know cost is important, and our priority was making adjustments elsewhere so we did not have to increase tuition,” stated Union’s President Dr. Margaret M. McMenamin.
