Applying to YCCC is FREE and easy.  With a rolling admissions process for most programs, students can apply and be considered throughout the entire year.

York County Community College has adopted a test-optional status.  We no longer require Accuplacer, SAT or ACT scores for admittance into the college.  YCCC will use multiple measures which will include transcripts, college-level experience, and available test scores to make placement decisions. Individual academic programs of study (such as nursing) may, however, have specific entrance requirements; contact the college admissions office and/or website for specific program entrance requirements.
