Spring on the York College campus

Winter Intersession

Winter Intersession at York College is a three-week-long academic experience scheduled in January, during which we will offer a selection of online courses. This is a great opportunity to earn extra credits toward your degree requirements, or perhaps retake a course to improve a grade that is not as high as you would like.
