Accepted Student Day

April 22, 2017

You got through the mounds of college admissions brochures, viewbooks, and letters, not to mention the emails, texts, and calls. You visited campuses (or maybe just ours!). You did your research.

And you are now ready to make a decision about becoming a York College Spartan.

We are so excited to get you on campus for your first big moment as an incoming college student! Accepted Student Day is incredible and goes beyond what you would have seen on a campus visit or an Open House, whether you have already deposited or are deciding on making a deposit. You'll take a mock class, walk through a huge student involvement fair and academic fair, get your introduction to what life will be like as a new student, get your photo taken for your college ID, and much more. Plus, anyone who deposits on Accepted Student Day (or before that date!) will be eligible to win $500 to the York College bookstore! 

It's a day you don't want to miss. Friendships will form. Parents will get informed. And you'll be one step closer to your first official day as a college student. 

School Spirit
Screamer will be there, along with tons of students to talk to about being a Spartan.
