Union City Community Schools students will now be automatically admitted to Olivet College, thanks to Olivet Direct!, a new program that makes the admissions process faster and easier for qualified students. Union City Community Schools is the eighth school to join Olivet Direct!.

Direct admission allows high-achieving students to lock in their acceptance and financial aid award without requiring them to go through a lengthy admissions process.

“Olivet College is thrilled that Union City Community Schools students will be able to take advantage of direct admission and benefit from our generous financial awards structure,” said Olivet College President Steven M. Corey, Ph.D. “An Olivet College education alters the trajectory of a person’s life. A four-year degree increases a person’s lifetime earnings, opens the door to countless career possibilities, broadens life experiences, and offers opportunities to build lasting friendships and mentorships with diverse populations.”

Further, Union City Community Schools high school students may qualify for the Olivet College ADVANTAGE Scholarship, which will cover the full cost of published tuition and general fees after all federal, state, and institutional grants and scholarships are applied. To qualify for free tuition, seniors must be eligible for the Michigan Achievement Scholarship, be Pell-eligible and have been a Michigan resident for at least one year. The Olivet College ADVANTAGE Scholarship aims to guarantee students, especially first-generation students and those from low-to-moderate-income families throughout Michigan, a quality, relationship-based college experience.

Union City High School Principal Amber Case said, “Union City High School is excited to partner with Olivet College as part of Olivet Direct!. We believe this partnership will bring to light opportunities for students who previously believed college enrollment was out of reach. Many students are reluctant to apply to schools that they believe they can not afford to attend. Olivet Direct! will remove the barriers that are preventing students from pursuing higher education.

As a graduate of Olivet, I understand first-hand how the educational system provided in Olivet can prepare a person for a positive future. I am grateful for my years on the Olivet campus and hope that Union City’s participation in Olivet Direct! will result in the same positive outcomes for students in the Union City area. Thank you to Olivet College for creating this pathway for our students.”
