Student Responsibility

Academic Advising is an essential process in the college setting. Upon entering York College every student is assigned an academic advisor who is qualified to assist in:

  • Planning the coursework of the program of study;
  • Developing strategies for academic success;
  • Providing guidance and information in preparation for the student's career and life goals.

Academic advisors are available to meet with their advisees during their regularly scheduled office hours when the College is in session in the fall and spring semesters or by appointment at other times. In addition, other academic support services are offered regularly on campus.

While academic advising assists students in academic planning, it is ultimately the students responsibility to meet the academic requirements for graduation. The student is expected to meet regularly with his/her advisor to discuss the development and implementation of short and long-term academic goals. The final responsibility in meeting graduation requirements, however, rests with the student.

Please read the responsibilities of the advisee and the academic advisor to ensure clarity of each individual's role.
