York College of Pennsylvania admissions welcome center for campus visitors

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

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we ask all guests to please register for an event prior to visiting campus. Non-registered guests will not be permitted to participate in on-campus visits or daily tours, and will be asked to return to campus once they've provided the proper notice by registering for their visit.
