Union University of California was founded with a commitment to provide high-quality higher education and is dedicated to the success of its learners. As a part of the admission process, the University seeks to assess an applicant’s potential to succeed in its online environment. Applicants must meet the program-specific admission requirements outlined in the accompanying table to be offered admission to UUC. Although particular emphasis is placed on the applicant’s academic history, non-academic factors may also be considered when evaluating an application for admission. Therefore, additional information and/or application materials may be requested and considered on an individual basis.
