  • Schedule of Classes and Timetables
  • Course Registration
  • Undergraduate and Graduate and Professional Programs Academic Catalogs
  • CAPP Degree Evaluation
  • Enrollment Verifications
We also work hand-in-hand with the Transfer Resource Center to ensure that incoming students are able to smoothly transition eligible credits from previous academic institutions into their records at YCP.

Current Students

  • Register for Classes

    New Students

    If you wish to enroll at York College as a new, transfer, or readmitted student, you must formally be admitted into a degree program. Our Admissions team can provide further information about the enrollment process or help you to submit an application. New, first-time, transfer, and readmitted Spring 2024 students must pay a deposit and work with an Admissions Counselor to schedule a meeting with Academic Advising to select classes. Students may request an appointment to be scheduled starting Wednesday, November 1st. 

    Non-matriculated (non-degree) students and students who wish to pursue graduate or professional studies should submit the appropriate application through YCP Admissions. Non-matriculated and Dual-enrolled students will submit course requests upon submission of the application to be registered starting Wednesday, November 1st, or after upon request. Contact an Admissions Counselor for more information. 

    Current Students

    If you are already a matriculated student at York College and it's time to register for classes, there are a few steps you can take to make the process as simple as possible.

    • Prepare
      • Know your major requirements. Review your Degree Plan and CAPP Degree Evaluation.
      • Make an appointment with your academic advisor at least one week before you plan to register for classes.
      • Review the Schedule of Classes for your program and check the Registration Timetable for your assigned time slot.  Graduate and Online Programs Schedule of Classes can be found here.
      • Make a list of the Course Reference Numbers (CRNs) for the classes you want next semester. Make sure you have a few extra courses listed as backups. 
    • Check Deposits and Holds
      • You should check for any holds on your account at least one week prior to registration so they can be resolved in a timely fashion. Holds may be related to parking violations, Health Center information, tuition balances, residence hall damage, etc. 
      • If you are registering for classes after the due date set by the Business Office, payment in full is expected that same day.
      • All newly matriculated students have an Advisor Hold placed on their account for their first two semesters of enrollment. This hold prohibits registration for classes until it is released by a student's Academic Advisor, following a meeting between the student and advisor to discuss coursework, scheduling, and academic progress.

  • Independent Study

    What is Independent Study?

    Independent Study involves a well-defined individual research project, supervised by a faculty member and completed without formal class meetings. These opportunities allow students to gain experience doing research and working closely with faculty mentors within their discipline, all while gaining academic credit for their work. Since such projects involve less formal classroom time than regular courses, effective Independent Study experiences require an increase in student responsibility and initiative throughout the learning process. 

    Requirements for Independent Study

    • Only matriculated students at York College will qualify for an Independent Study.
    • Students must have successfully completed a minimum of 60 credits at the time of application.
    • Students must hold a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the time of application.
    • The application for Independent Study must be approved by a student's academic department chair by the last day of Add/Drop during the desired semester of study. No extensions will be granted.
    • All tuition and fees must be paid according to Business Office deadlines.

    Applying for Independent Study

    Students may download the Application for Independent Study or obtain a paper copy from the Registrar's Office. The form should be completed by the student, including a comprehensive summary describing the nature, objectives, and evaluation format of the desired Independent Study experience. Forms should then be signed by the Department Chair and submitted to the Registrar's Office for entry into the student's schedule. 

    Independent Study may be completed during the fall or spring semesters, or during Special Session in the summer.

  • CAPP Degree Evaluation

    The CAPP (Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning) system is used to track a student's course work toward their degree requirements. Students and their Academic Advisors use this as a tool to help manage course scheduling and degree planning, while academic departments and the Registrar's Office will use CAPP Degree Evaluations to certify students for graduation from York College.

    Matriculated students are able to run CAPP degree evaluations using their MyYCP username and password.

    How to Use Your CAPP Evaluation

    CAPP Degree Evaluation can be accessed by both students and Academic Advisors to review academic progress in your major or any other major offered by York College. The CAPP displays (1) all of the requirements needed to complete your degree, (2) how each course you have registered for and/or completed fulfills each requirement, and (3) which requirements still need to be fulfilled.

    You can access your CAPP through the MyYCP portal and YCPWeb. Students are encouraged to run a CAPP Degree Evaluation each semester before they register for the next semester's classes. Keeping a copy of your CAPP on hand is helpful when meeting with your Academic Advisor, as it will indicate both completed coursework and courses that are still outstanding in your curriculum. 

    *A student's CAPP is divided into the various areas of the major, such as the core curriculum courses, the major requirements, free electives, and any other unique requirements. These requirements can also be viewed in the Academic Catalog.

    What if I don't know my major yet (or I'm considering switching majors)? 

    The CAPP Degree Evaluation includes a function that allows matriculated students to create a "What-If" analysis. This is especially useful for undeclared majors, or for those who are considering changing from one major to another.

    CAPP Resources for Faculty

    Please visit the Faculty CAPP Substitution/Target/Waiver Qualtrics Form.

    For an overview on how to submit the Faculty CAPP Substitution/Target/Waiver Qualtrics Form, view our tutorial video: How to Submit a Qualtrics CAPP

     

  • Student Forms and Resources
  • Academic Catalogs

    Each year, York College publishes updated digital Undergraduate and Graduate and Professional Programs Academic Catalogs. The Catalog contains information about academic majors and programs, required and elective courses, general education requirements, academic standards, and more. 

    Students should reference the edition of the Academic Catalog from the year in which the student matriculated into their York College academic program. 

    Note: Students in master's, doctorate, or professional certificate programs should be sure to reference the Graduate and Professional Programs Catalog from their incoming academic year.

  • Apostilles

    Apostilles

    What is an Apostille?

    An apostille is essentially a certificate of authenticity for a U.S. document (i.e. diploma or a transcript). As of Oct. 15, 1981, the U.S. became a member of the 1961 Hague Convention which abolished the requirement of legalization for foreign public documents. The Convention provides for the simplified certification of public (including notarized) documents to be used in countries that have joined the convention. Under the Hague Convention, signatory countries have agreed to recognize public documents issued by other signatory countries if those public documents are authenticated by the attachment of an internationally recognized form of authentication known as an apostille.

    View a list of Hague Conference countries.

    How Do I Obtain an Apostille or Certification?

    The student is responsible for the entire apostille application process. The Registrar's Office does not offer notary services. If a student needs transcripts and/or their diploma notarized, they will need to set up and pay for arrangements for a mobile notary to come to the Registrar's Office. They will also need to make arrangements for the diploma and the official transcript to be at the Registrar's Office during the notarization.

    For additional information on apostilles, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of State's website.
