Articulation (Transfer) Agreements
Union College maintains articulation agreements with several regional community colleges. These 2+2 transfer plans will help students make a more seamless transition to Union. The 2+2 transfer plans will enable the students to identify specific courses while at KCTCS Somerset Community College campus that will help them be program ready upon admissions to Union. You can plan a program of study that begins with courses to complete at your community college that then lead to a four-year degree from Union.
