EVALUATION OF CREDITS Union University accepts all college level credit earned through regionally accredited colleges and universities if the student earned a grade of “C” or higher. The Registrar evaluates each transcript sent and sends an updated report with each new transcript received.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS Students who want to transfer to Union can apply at any time, and applications are considered on a rolling basis. Students with fewer than 24 credit hours earned post high school graduation are designated as “Freshman Transfer” and are required to meet all freshman and transfer admissions requirements. Students transferring with more than 24 credit hours earned post high school graduation must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.3 in order to be considered for unconditional admission. Students who do not meet these requirements will be referred to the Undergraduate Admissions Committee to be considered for conditional admission.

 laudia Velasco transferred from an elite private university. She completed C internships on Wall Street and on Capitol Hill. She is now in the Global Services Leadership Development Program at EMC Corporation, and was accepted into the Harvard M.B.A. program.

“I had looked at Union, but I decided to go to another school. I came back to visit some Union friends and I fit right in and felt at home here. I loved it. That’s one of the reasons I decided to transfer. Union is really a place where you can grow so much as a person and as a Christian leader. The people here will challenge you in a way you can’t experience anywhere else.”

FINANCIAL AID & SCHOLARSHIPS At Union University, we understand the investment of time and resources necessary for earning a degree and how that can affect family and student financial planning. Union is consistently ranked as one of the best values in private higher education, and we want to help you make it as affordable as possible. Eligibility for transfer merit scholarships is based on cumulative GPA minimums from all colleges attended. If you plan to live on campus, your scholarship amount will be higher. Students will also be considered for additional Union University scholarship and need-based aid upon review of FAFSA results.

“I chose to transfer to Union because I wanted to spend the rest of my time in college in a faith-based learning atmosphere. In my time at Union I have grown so much in my faith and as a person. I’m so glad that God led me to Union. I couldn’t see myself anywhere else”
