Gen Next Summer Courses

Getting ahead is a breeze this summer

You can make this your most productive summer yet. Take 2 or 4 Generation Next courses during Summer I or II at York College, and you'll receive a scholarship to cover 50% of course costs. It's that easy. But it's not just about saving tuition dollars (although that helps!). By taking courses this summer that count toward your general education credit requirement, you can:

  • Graduate sooner: Think of how far along you'll be in the fall with Gen Next classes taken care of over the summer, and under a condensed schedule.
  • Improve your GPA: Retake a course and aim for that GPA-boosting grade you need, all without slowing you down during the upcoming school year.
  • Finish your requirements faster: With less time devoted to Gen Next during the school year, you'll have more credits available to pursue a minor or other academic goals.

Take a look at the course offerings. Talk with your academic advisor. Then apply for the Gen Next scholarship. Once accepted, you'll be able to register for summer courses at half the cost!

Note: A minimum of 2 courses must be taken. The courses are offered during Summer I (June 10-July 11) and Summer II (July 15-August 15) sessions. 

Students who register for 12-18 credits in the summer and are eligible for Full-time financial aid are unable to use the Gen Next Summer scholarship. This scholarship opportunity is only available to YCP students that had schedules in Fall 2018 or Spring 2019.

  • Q: What kind of student should take advantage of Gen Next summer courses?

    Most YCP students are eligible for these courses, but this would be most ideal for those students that are either retaking a failed Gen Next course or those who are interested in getting some Gen Next requirements out of the way in Summer I and II so they can focus on their major courses in the Fall and Spring semesters.

    Students who register for 12-18 credits in the summer and are eligible for Full-time financial aid are unable to use the Gen Next Summer scholarship. This scholarship opportunity is only available to YCP students that had schedules in Fall 2018 or Spring 2019.

  • Q: Do these count the same as classes during the fall or spring?

    Yes, these courses are worth exactly the same credits if they are taken in the Summer as if they were taken in the Fall or Spring (except they are significantly less expensive).

  • Q: I only want to take one summer class. Can I still get the scholarship?

    Unfortunately, no. This scholarship is designed for students to either improve his or her past GPA or leap forward in Gen Next requirements.

    Think about this: If you take one course, then you are able to take the second course for free. Why not take advantage of this scholarship and complete two courses instead of just one?

  • Q: Can I live on campus while taking summer courses?

    Yes!  On-campus housing is available during the summer.  For complete information, please contact the Office of Residence Life at 717.815.1281 or residencelife@ycp.edu.  

  • Q: I'm not sure if this is right for me. Who can help me decide?

    Your best bet is to discuss your summer plans with your academic advisor. They will look at the big picture, such as how this fits into your overall graduation goals (when you want to graduate, what degree you're seeking, etc.) as well as ensuring you're taking the right Gen Next courses so that you truly are getting ahead.
