Spring on the York College campus

About Us

York College is the ideal location from which to launch your best possible future - starting from day one.

Size matters. Year after year, our students confirm that York College is ideally-sized: large enough to provide you the same opportunities as a major university and small enough to maintain our strong student focus. Classes are small. Experience-based learning is emphasized. Faculty are enthusiastic subject matter experts,  dedicated to both teaching and mentoring. Choose from more than 70 bachelor’s degree programs, or let us help you identify your passion and create a plan.

Students gather with YCP's number one fan, Screamer.
YCP students get the best of both worlds - exceptional academic programs and an out-of-the classroom experience that creates memories for a lifetime.
