Every year Union College offers a variety of mini-terms, three-week programs running during winter break or at the beginning of summer break. Mini-term offerings are subject to change every year. Application guidelines can be found under the FAQs of the How to Apply Section, and the form itself is online.

Mini-terms carry an additional tuition charge and cannot be combined with two courses in another term as one term's tuition. The course credit earned can be used to get caught up if the student is behind in credits; otherwise, the course credit earned will be above and beyond those used for graduation. It cannot be combined with other credits to graduate early.

Union College does not operate or direct study abroad programs, including independent study abroad projects, for any student in a country for which a U.S. Department of State Travel Warning or U.S. economic sanctions are in effect. Refer to the Policy for Travel Restrictions for International Programs for more details.
