Visit York College

Let us show you around our 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.

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