In response to COVID-19, York College has made modifications to our admission process and how we interact with prospective students. We are relying on virtual visits and socially distanced interactions on campus to build relationships with students and families. All Open House events will be virtual this year, and we've expanded our admission requirements to offer a test optional path. Learn More

      Most of the dorms are extremely old and run down. Constant problems with meal plan balances and having to go to administration to get my meals fixed. Extremely aggressive (or bored) Campus Police harassing students for anything and everything, meanwhile people are getting shot right outside the campus. No extra Curricular activities to speak of. Food is terrible, except on parent and new student visit days. Poor online classes during COVID, and they raised their rates on top of it. Paying more than full price for half the experience.

      The college has been great so far, transferring here has definitely been worth it! The professors are great, they are fun yet very knowledgable and have given fair exams throughout my first year here. Overall, coming from a transfer commuter student, York has been a welcoming environment, one that has already elevated the capabilities of my learning!
      York College of Pennsylvania is a great place to study! The faulty and staff are always super helpful and always willing to help you, no matter the question or situation. The dining halls are always clean, and the food is always good with a wide selection to choose from. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the students are always pleasant.
