Understanding College Series
Still not completely sure which career path is for you? Not sure what's the difference between a FAFSA and a Pell Grant? No idea how to turn a major into a career? Don't worry, you're not alone!
Attend York College of Pennsylvania's Understanding College event series to get answers on these big questions, with a focus on giving you low-pressure conversations with current college students. These evening events give you and your family the answers you've been seeking directly from people in the know, regardless whether you plan on attending York College.
While you are not required to attend all of the events, we highly encourage you to attend as many as possible to get the most of this specialized program and to best prepare you for college.
- Financial Literacy Night: Monday, February 12, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. It's tough to wade through all of the financial information sent to you, let alone know what to do about your personal finances when you enter college. Find out what you need to know and have experts on hand for your FAQs, including representatives from PHEAA, PNC Bank, and YCP's financial aid office. The event will be held in the Willman Business Center.
- Major-to-Career Night: Monday, March 12, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. How exactly do you go from "student with a major" to "graduate with a job"? We'll have officials and students who can talk you through what to expect, from internships to course requirements, so you have an idea what your career path might look like. We'll even walk you through real job post listings so you can see how you can "reverse engineer" the process and use your end goal to determine what you need to know and do now.
