On behalf of the Office of Student Affairs, and the entire Union Community, it is a pleasure to congratulate you on your admission to Union Theological Seminary. You are joining a community of students, faculty, and staff who share a passion for bold and graceful theological conversation, reflection, education, and praxis in response to the issues of its time.
Below is a comprehensive look at everything incoming students should complete BEFORE coming to Orientation.
The relevant data/demographic information collected in your orientation paperwork will be shared with administrative offices at Union for educational purposes. We ask that you provide consistent information, particularly when sharing your legal name.
Before you may begin your orientation paperwork, you must pay your $250 Tuition Deposit, and sign and submit your financial aid award letter. You will receive your award letter in your Union e-mail account from Melissa Desravines. The letter must be signed and submitted within two weeks from the date that you receive it. If you have any questions about Financial Aid, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Student Affairs serves as advocates for our students during their time at seminary. Often we are the best place to go when you’re not sure what to do or whom to ask. Questions about Student Affairs? Email The Office of Student Affairs at email@example.com.
