Office of the President

Welcome to the 2020-2021 academic year!  Higher education provides you with a platform to pursue and achieve your dreams. Amid a global pandemic, you have made the fearless decision to focus on your future, I commend you for your dedication. For over 25 years, York County Community College has been dedicated to helping students, like yourself, achieve their goals; this has not and will not change! As you imagine your future, we have been working tirelessly to reimagine how we can better serve you!

Our faculty and staff have worked tirelessly on behalf of our students and the communities we serve. We have streamlined our admission process by removing unnecessary barriers. We have restructured our Student Success Commons to provide integrated and seamless support for our students. We have created countless workforce development programs to help individuals gain the skills needed to support local business and industry.  At the heart of everything we have done, and everything we will continue to do, is YOU!

As we embark on an unprecedented academic year, I encourage you to stay connected with the College. If you have questions or concerns about your classes, reach out to the faculty member that is teaching the course. If you need advice on how to navigate your college journey, connect with your Student Success Coach.  If you are stressed or need help with your studies or classes, also please contact our Student Success Coaches. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to YOUR success. WE are here to help you! Remember, the greatness of YCCC is not our buildings, as beautiful as they are. Our greatness is our community and the faculty, staff, and students that are a part of it.

As we reimagine ourselves and how we can best serve you, we will remain committed to providing you with an education that will be …

Accessible – Many of our students are the first in their family to attend college. Others are adults attending college for the first time or returning after years away. Most of our students work while attending class; as such, we provide pathways that are convenient to their schedules.

Affordable – While YCCC offers the lowest tuition in New England, we provide you with a 1st class education taught by dedicated, respected, and knowledgeable faculty.

Relevant – Our classes are small, and our professors will know you by name. Our programs are reviewed and updated to ensure that you are getting an education that matters now and in the future.

Thank you for choosing YCCC. We are proud to play a part in your journey. I wish you the best of luck this year, and I am looking forward to meeting you in the near future.

Best wishes for a bright and prosperous future.

Michael Fischer, Ed.D.
