    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. Personalize your visit by requesting to speak to financial aid, your Admissions Counselor, faculty members and athletic coaches. Please note, faculty and athletic coaches are not always available in the summer.

    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!
