Still trying to decide whether York College is the right choice for you? Check out our information to help you decide!

The Institutional Research Office is here to help support decision making. We report data to guidebooks and websites to help prospective students decide whether York College is the right choice for them. We also help faculty and administrators within the College set goals and gather information to know whether their goals were achieved, and provide expertise in improving the information often used to make decisions about how to allocate their limited resources.

Our required Consumer/Student Information is available as well. Faculty and students wanting to pursue institutional research need to use the Institutional Review Board.
