New Student Day marks the first step in your successful transition to York College.
On this day, you will:
Individual invitations to the New Student Day are usually mailed out to students beginning in the middle of January. A registration form is enclosed which needs to be completed and mailed back to the Registrar's Office one week prior to the program. We need to know the student's major, minor, areas of interests, transfer credits, AP or CLEP credits, if they will be an athlete, foreign language preference and time preference so that we can provide them with an appropriate schedule of classes. A self-addressed envelope is included for your convenience.
Students who cannot attend a New Student Day program should complete the registration form and check the "Schedule By Mail" option and return the form to the Registrar's Office. An individual schedule will be prepared and mailed to the home address. If you have been admitted after May 1, you should also follow this procedure.
All transfer and readmitted students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a professional staff member in the Registrar's Office to register for classes. We suggest this approach so that we can review all the transfer credits and or York College credits and explain to you how they will apply to your particular major. Transferring from a different college or starting again at York College can be complicated and we want to help you make that transition as smooth as possible. If this is not possible, you should complete the registration form and send it to the Registrar's Office so that we can prepare a "Schedule By Mail" for you.
We invite newly accepted students and their parents to attend one of three New Student Days.
