Working together

Paying for college takes teamwork. You, your family, Union College and the federal government work together to help you earn your degree. Nearly every student at Union College is eligible for some type of scholarship or financial aid. Student Financial Services is here to guide you through the process. We call it a symbiosis. (Why not? We're science-y like that.)
