Visit York College

Let us show you around our amazing campus, introduce you to future classmates and answer all of your questions.

The best thing about college visits is seeing a college campus in person to get a fantastic sense of whether it is the right fit. We strongly believe you'll leave your York College visit with a great understanding of what makes us unique and how we can fit into your vision for college and a career.

Tour campus, ask students questions, attend a class, meet professors, discuss financial aid options, and so much more. From the moment you set foot on campus, you'll feel the difference. But you have to take that first step — registering for a campus visit.

We're ready for you to join the Spartan family.

PLEASE NOTE: As a precautionary measure, our campus will be closed to visitors until April 14, 2020, and all campus visits will be rescheduled.  If you are registered for a visit during this timeframe, someone will be in contact with you (if they haven’t already reached out) about rescheduling your visit to York. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We are no longer holding our March 28, April 18, or May 2 Accepted Student Days. Accepted Student Day will now be held on Saturday, May 30, 2020.

Junior Visitation Day has also been rescheduled from April 4, 2020, to June 13, 2020.

If you have questions about this information or an upcoming event, please contact us at 717.849.1600 or admissions@ycp.edu. Thank you!
