Off-Campus Study Approval Process
Students already matriculated at York College who would like to take a course off campus will need to complete the Off Campus Study Approval Form prior to the beginning of off-campus courses to be assured that academic credit will be awarded by York College.
It is necessary for the student to provide the Academic Advisor and the Registrar's Office with course descriptions to determine the appropriate York College course equivalencies. The course descriptions are typically found in college catalogs.
Once your form is signed by both you and your academic advisor, please submit the form to our Registrar’s Office for final approval. The Registrar’s Office is located in the Miller Administration Building, Room 32.
