Standards for Full Admission:
- You must have at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale on all work from previous institutions. You must be eligible to return to the previous institutions you attended, and you must be in good standing.
- Union College will record a summary of transfer credits, indicating the total number of hours accepted and the quality point average at the sending institution. Union accepts only transfer work in courses with a grade of “C” or above.
- Sixty-seven semester hours is the maximum number of hours that will be accepted from a two-year institution.
- If you are transferring from a 4-year institution, you must satisfactorily complete 32 hours at Union College before you are eligible for graduation.
- Transfer credits will be accepted at the level of the initiating institution. Therefore, if you're transferring from a two-year institution, you must accumulate 39 semester hours of upper division credits while attending Union College before you are eligible for graduation.
