Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Excellent place for an education. You get what you pay for.

Students from Union College seem to have a lot of opportunities after graduation, and the education they receive is a major help in the real world
Emily from Ballston Spa, NY
Most of all Union students receive some type of financial aid, so that 50+k a year really drops. Campus jobs help, too, even if you aren't awarded work study. Overall, you're really getting a lot. Getting an education + having fun while doing so - outrageous bills = Perks of Union College.
Victoria from Athens, NY
The experiences I've had at Union so far have already made it worth every penny. In terms of finding a good job after graduation, the Becker Career Center on campus has some awesome resources to help graduating seniors and other students find internships and jobs for during the year, during the breaks, and especially after graduation.
Jordan from Ballston Spa, NY
The academics are highly respectable and it's not likely that you'll leave having no career options. Make sure you participate in extracurricular activities, though!
Britt from Albany, NY
Union college ranks among the top colleges in return for you diploma.
William from Winter Park, FL
If you have the money to go here, fantastic. If you don't, make sure you're an attractive candidate for scholarships.
