The York College Promise
For students in York County, PA, York College of Pennsylvania isn’t just another local school. Our campus is a constant presence, filled with educational experiences that support our communities, and a promise of opportunity for a bright future. Now, the York College Promise expands our commitment to access to education, especially for local under-resourced students.
The York College Promise provides eligible graduates from York County high schools with an opportunity to attend college as part of a cohort of fellow program participants who will live and learn together on campus. Students will receive personalized support with academic advising, work-study job opportunities, and free tuition toward their cost of attendance at York College. York Promise participants will also be part of the Changemakers community, a network of York College student volunteers and service-based student groups.
An education from York will help to drive the economic impact of a well-educated workforce in York County. The Promise program offers an opportunity for students who come from families that, without assistance, would not be able to attend a four-year college. We believe in the young people in our communities and are making a promise that we will help them succeed as part of a stronger York County.
The Application for the York College Promise, for Fall 2023, is now closed.
