Incoming Students: Action Items

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 return to your Application Status Portal in order to submit your $250 Tuition Deposit, and download your financial aid award letter. You will receive your Financial Aid award letter in your application portal 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
