The College has an open admissions policy for both transfer and career programs and is dedicated to the fundamental values of public higher education. The oldest two-year, continuously operating, non-profit, degree-granting institution in New Jersey (1933), Union County College provides opportunities for higher education for people of diverse ethnic, racial, cultural, educational and socioeconomic backgrounds in a multi-campus setting. The College has four campuses, which are located in Cranford, Elizabeth, Plainfield and Scotch Plains.
