Mobility Scholarship Initiative


Removing Cost As A Barrier: A York Imperative

York College believes that students are too bright to waste their valuable resources on an education that fails to prepare them to excel in their career of choice. For this reason, York College is committed to providing students with an affordable online education which launches them into their next degree, next career, or next opportunity. The York College Online experience is more affordable and allows students to graduate without the burdens of insurmountable student loans. We are committed to preparing our online students for what comes next!
