BRATTLEBORO — Union Institute & University (UI&U), a private, non-profit university in Brattleboro, will host an Experience Day on Saturday, March 17, from 9 a.m. to noon, at its Academic Center on Old Guilford Road in Brattleboro.

The event will feature an overview of the B.A. Weekend program by enrollment counselor Lindsay Guido.

The B.A. Weekend program caters to working adults, offering a flexible schedule in which students attend classes and interact with faculty and fellow students one weekend a month at the Brattleboro Center. The progressive learning format allows students to engage in and build relationships with faculty and other students, while allowing them to complete their studies on a schedule that works for them.

Union's programs provide adults with an opportunity to finish their degree and recognizes the importance of prior learning, offering credit for life experience, certified learning, and CLEP exams. With a liberal transfer policy that accepts up to 78 transfer credits, students can complete their B.A. degree in as little as 18 months. The program welcomes students with no prior college experience, but offers a 10 percent tuition discount to graduates of the Community College of Vermont system and the Community College System of New Hampshire.
