    The Cost of Attendance budget includes both direct and indirect costs. Directs costs are those billed by York College. Indirect costs are estimates of those incurred by a student, but not billed directly by the school. The combined costs equal the total Cost of Attendance budget used to determine financial aid eligibility.

    *Other fees may be incurred including Undergraduate Differentials for Communications, Engineering, Nursing and Respiratory Therapy, Computer Science, and Hospitality majors.

    **Room costs will vary upon the actual dormitory assignment. Visit the Residence Life and Housing Office for individual rates.

    Additional tuition is billed at the part-time (per credit) rate for any additional credits above the full-time range of 18 credits.

    NOTE: Delinquent Accounts -- No student shall be enrolled, receive a diploma or receive a transcript until all previous accounts have been paid. Unpaid accounts will be referred to a collection agency. All percentage-based collection fees, not to exceed 35%, will be the responsibility of the student.

    A $100.00 Off-Campus Study Administration Fee is charged to a student who is registered at YCP but conducting their study at another location. Examples would be the Nuclear Med-tech program and any study abroad programs.

    The College reserves the right to change fees and charges without notice; however, College policy mandates moderate changes with reasonable advance notice of such changes.

    Audit Fee
    A student can audit a class. The fee is 15% of tuition plus the general fee. Auditing will not be permitted in laboratory studies, studio courses, language courses, independent study, internship or non-credit courses. No credit(s) is earned.

    Senior Citizens
    York College extends an invitation to all senior citizens, age 60 or over, who wish to audit (take a class on a noncredit basis) an undergraduate course. The senior citizen may enroll in these courses by completing a registration form and paying a part-time general fee, plus applicable lab fees. No tuition will be charged. This invitation is extended on a space-available basis.
