Enrollment Handbook

Enrollment Handbook

Before you know it, you'll be sitting in a York College classroom working on a hands-on research project. Or laughing with some new friends inside Spart's Den after a stop at our campus Starbucks. Maybe you'll be cheered on (or doing the cheering) at a Spartan athletic event! 

But first, we need you to complete some steps. College, you'll find out, means you're more in charge of your education, and that starts with getting all the right forms filled out and steps completed.
