Union uses a rolling admissions policy, which means applications are reviewed and admission decisions are made on a regular basis beginning each September. This means we continue filling a new class until there is no more space. For that reason, it’s very important that you apply as early as possible.
Students who are not U.S. citizens need to submit a $35 application fee and fill out the online application and accompanying forms which can be found below. Students also need to submit an official score report of at least 80 on the TOEFL, 6.5 on the IELTS, 22 on the ACT, or 1020 (combined critical reading and math) on the SAT. Official transcript evaluations are required in most cases.
When you are admitted to Union University, you will receive a form I-20. This form, your passport, financial records and proof of your ties to your home country must be presented to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your country along with a completed Student Visa application form. Apply early enough to have a student visa in hand before International Student Orientation and the official start of the semester.
Union University’s global outlook attracts students from every corner of the world. From Kenya to Malaysia and Brazil to Canada, students come to study under one of the finest teaching faculties to be found anywhere. The Union University community welcomes diversity and looks forward to assisting you in this transition to college life in the United States.

“It can be challenging in the
beginning because you are
changing cultures and you
don’t always know what to
expect. But Union has people
in place who are very gracious
and helpful to international
students. They know it
might take you a bit longer
to understand the system
and they are always willing to help. The music
classes are challenging but I am learning a lot.”

“To have graduated from Union
has been one of the greatest
blessings I have had in my life.
Coming from Guatemala and
leaving the people I love the
most was hard at first, but
Union, as a people-focused
organization, made me feel
at home. God used so many
people to help me become
the professional woman I am today.”

"I like the engineering program because
of the close relationship we have with
our professors. The program is challenging,

an engineer and blending into the industry."

Engineering major, Nigeria
"I first came to the United States as an exchange student.
After completing high school, I selected Union University
as my college based on its academic reputation, Christian
environment and challenging instruction. My professors have
challenged me and taught me to not give up on my dream. More
importantly, they have taught me to see that my gift is from
God and it;s all for His glory. My journey to become a concert
pianist began with piano lessons at the age of three. As a
result of my experience at Union I am now applying for
graduate school at the San Francisco conservatory and
Shanghai Conservatory of Music in China."
