Congratulations, Class of 2022!
On May 14, 2022, York College celebrated the graduation of the Class of 2022. Spring Commencement was hosted outdoors, under a large tent on Main Campus in front of Wolf Hall. Student remarks were provided by Tiffany Nguyen '22, followed by a Commencement address by filmmarker Joseph McGinty Nichol, "McG."
Nearly 700 graduates – earning associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees – were recognized during the ceremony.
Information for Winter 2022 graduates will be made available on this page during the Fall 2022 semester.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I view video of the Commencement ceremony?

    The video stream from the May 14, 2022 ceremony was recorded, and can be viewed either directly on this webpage or on YouTube.

  • How can I purchase graduation photos?
    YCP works with a company called Grad Images to take photos of each graduate at Commencement. Three photos of each graduate are taken: two before they cross the platform and one on the platform as they shake hands with President Gunter-Smith.
    Proofs of the photos will be made available online in early June 2022. Students are not obligated to purchase photos; they are optional.
