Tuition & Fees

Tuition

Union College is committed to providing an exceptional education at a reasonable cost. Union’s cost of tuition, room and board remains below the national average for private four-year colleges and universities.

Over 90% of our students receive scholarships to help offset the cost. You may receive larger scholarships and need based awards from other schools. We simply ask that you compare the bottom line and the quality of education that you will be receiving. If you enroll, our commitment is that you will receive the best possible education for the most reasonable possible cost.

Room and Board figures are based on a standard double room and the 23-meal plan. Total actual costs per student may vary depending upon room and board selections.
