Welcome to York College

A vibrant, private college with affordable tuition? All that and more.

Everyone seems to promise individualized attention, small sizes, and a friendly atmosphere. How many colleges can deliver on that? At York College of Pennsylvania, you're getting the college experience you've always wanted. We're a private college of 4,000 students that offers you experiences way beyond what you'd expect, from huge spring concerts to internships at major corporations. We have professors who care about your education and have real world experience they can share. And we do all of this at a tuition rate that most other private colleges can't touch, all while keeping up academic quality to the point that one out of three students is employed before graduation.
