Thank you for visiting our transfer student website. The information presented here directly relates to our traditional Undergraduate Transfer audience. If you are interested in any of our non-traditional programs please visit the specific link for your program of study. Many of these links can be found here - www.uu.edu/resources/adultlearners. If you have any questions please call 731-661-5000 during normal business hours and you will be transferred to the appropriate person. We enroll transfers all throughout the year, and are glad you are taking the time to learn more about us. We want to make your transition to Union University as easy as possible. Students who consider becoming a part of our community tell us they were pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the process unfolded.

You're ready to take that crucial next step, transferring to a four-year university, and you need to make a decision that will allow you to pursue your chosen field with the best chance for success.

At Union University, our students and faculty excel in many fields. But we are more than an academically challenging university. Our students are encouraged to move toward a mature reflection of what the Christian faith means for every field of study.

It's this integration of faith and learning that sets Union apart from hundreds of other private and church-affiliated schools. Our values are not just for special occasions - we live them every day. They are a part of every experience, inside and outside the classroom.

Our core values call for us to be excellence-driven, Christ-centered, people-focused and future-directed. With those goals before us, we have become a community of caring scholars. We want to share this unique learning opportunity with you.

What our transfer students are saying...

Claudia Velasco“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.”

Chris Lanham“One thing that sets Union apart from other schools is the incredible faculty. Not only am I being taught to be a great engineer but I am also learning how to be a strong man of God. Every day in class I get to glean from the wisdom of great Godly role models that have already integrated strong Christian faith with their occupation. Having God-centered professors that really care for their students is why I chose to transfer to Union.”

RobertPaulStephens-150.jpg "I transferred to Union from an area community college where I became a member of Phi Theta Kappa. After graduating from community college, I had no idea where I wanted to finish my Bachelor's degree and was concerned that Union might not be affordable. However, I remembered that the Transfer Coordinator from Union had spoken at my school and said that "Union works with all types of budgets." After working closely with the transfer coordinator, I started my experience at Union in the fall of that year. From the beginning, I became involved with Union's Phi Theta Kappa Alumni Chapter, served that chapter for 2 and ½ years, was elected treasurer, and became involved in several local service projects. I can say it has been a blessing to serve both God and the Union community as a result of being a part of Phi Theta Kappa."
