Still trying to decide whether York College is the right choice for you? Check out our information to help you decide!

The Institutional Research Office is here to help support decision making. We report data to guidebooks and websites to help prospective students decide whether York College is the right choice for them. We also help faculty and administrators within the College set goals and gather information to know whether their goals were achieved, and provide expertise in improving the information often used to make decisions about how to allocate their limited resources.

Our required Consumer/Student Information is available as well. Faculty and students wanting to pursue institutional research need to use the Institutional Review Board.

Here are the rates for students whose most recent major on record was in the Graham School of Business:

    • Fall of 2014 entering cohort: 77.3% retention

    Time to Degree of Recent Graduates

    Time to Degree looks at how long it took Graham School of Business graduates to achieve their bachelor's degrees.  For degree recipients in the past few years, here is how much time passed between the student's first semester at York College and the semester when they received their degree. These calculations include students who came to York College as degree-seeking, first time (not transfer), full-time, first-year (total credits less than 30), undergraduate students.
