Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Union County College
Its difficult to trust a school with financial advisors whos only concern is to have you spend your finances in this facility without any concerns about addressing your questions or pretend like they actually know weather what they're advicing you is the best academic option for your future.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Ive heard good things about your education, your students and Staff are some of the most rude people Ive ever encountered.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
It’s both the newest and oldest community college in N.J. It was formed in 1982 (making it the youngest) from Union Junior College, which was founded in 1933 (making it the oldest) and Union Technology Institute. There are full time and part time students. There are students who are serious about learning and some who don’t know what else to do. There are superlative professors and so that have so many other commitments that students really just teach themselves.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I registered a continuing education class and its' cancelled after charging me a fee. They were kindly notify me about a cancellation by a phone but it was just a day before the class so I could make any plan for weeks. The staffs were nice and helpful though.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I have to agree about how hard it is to contact them by phone even when I'm a current student. And the counselor service is only used for arranging class schedule (They're not even good at it. I arranged my schedule most of the time, just came there to get their signatures.) Anyway, they do have several great teachers who really care about students and their careers, esp the game design department.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
