Understanding College Series

Insight into how exactly college works — and how you can come prepared

Still not completely sure which career path is for you? Not sure what's the difference between a FAFSA and a Pell Grant? No idea how to turn a major into a career? Don't worry, you're not alone!

Attend York College of Pennsylvania's Understanding College event series to get answers on these big questions, with a focus on giving you low-pressure conversations with current college students. These evening events give you and your family the answers you've been seeking directly from people in the know, regardless whether you plan on attending York College.

While you are not required to attend all 3 events, we highly encourage you to attend as many as possible to get the most of this specialized program and to best prepare you for college.

  • Academic Exploration Night: Tuesday, December 5th 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Whether you plan to enter college undeclared or just want guidance on how to narrow down your options, hear from students who have been in your shoes from numerous majors. Families are invited to hear from academic advising on how to help students toward making a decision.
  • Financial Literacy Night: Monday, February 12th 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. It's tough to wade through all of the financial information sent to you. Find out what you need to know and have experts on hand for your FAQs.
  • Major-to-Career Night: Monday, March 12th, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. How exactly do you go from "student with a major" to "graduate with a job"? We'll have officials and students who can talk you through what to expect, from internships to course requirements, so you have an idea what your career path might look like.
