FINANCIAL AID 
BASIS FOR AWARDING GRANTS AND SCHOLARSHIPS

Tuition award aid is based on need and non-need for both full- and part-time students.

The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Two of the eligibility criteria for the FAFSA are citizenship status and selective service registration. Students who are not eligible to complete the FAFSA may still be eligible for scholarships.  Scholarship applicants must complete the Union County College internal scholarship application, be enrolled in a degree or certificate program and be enrolled in at least six credits in a semester.
For grants and scholarships for which need is not considered, the criteria used in making award decisions include academic standing, state/district residency, leadership, art and athletics. 
POLICIES ON REDUCING AND/ OR MEETING COLLEGE COSTS
Policies implemented by the College to help students reduce or meet college costs include tuition and/or fee waiver for senior citizens and employees/families of employees. 
Tuition payment plans offered by the College include credit card payments and deferred payment plans.
