York College of Pennsylvania admissions welcome center for campus visitors

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. You just ... know, right? We strongly believe you'll leave a visit to the York College campus with a great understanding of what makes us unique and how we can fit into your vision for college and a career. You can tour campus, ask students questions, sit in on a class, meet professors, discuss financial aid options, and so much more. From the moment you set foot on campus you feel the difference. But you have to take that first step — registering for a campus visit. Check out our options below to see what is the best fit. 

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

  • Information Session

    Pick a Date for Your Information Session and Campus Tour

    We'd love to welcome you to our beautiful College in York, Pennsylvania. Our daily visits consist of an overview of the college from our Admissions Team. A student ambassador will show you through our modern, inviting classroom buildings and student life hubs and answer questions about what your life will be like as a Spartan, from playing varsity or club sports to living in a residence hall. 

    Admissions Tip: If you think York College is right for you, apply before your visit! It gives our counselors much more information to help answer your questions when you arrive!

    School year: Mondays - Fridays 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m., unless otherwise indicated.

    Want a personalized visit? We will work with you to put together a custom experience, such as talking with a certain faculty member or seeing certain parts of campus. Please note that this is pending staff availability for the date you choose.
