York College Welcomes Transfer Students

Welcome to the York College family

As a transfer student into our community, we recognize the importance of navigating through the transfer process. You'll find important information below about the transfer process, financial aid, and more.

You may feel anxious about the transfer process, but we have created a Transfer Resource Center to serve as a guide to answer questions you may have about transferring to York College. We make the process simple to transfer from both 2-year or 4-year institutions. Let our Transfer Team, located within the Registrar's Office, help you during this exciting time in your collegiate career! 

York College earned the Phi Theta Kappa Excellence in Community College Transfer Honor Roll distinction.
