New Student Orientation
Below is a link to our online version of New Student Orientation where you will find information about many of the programs and services we offer here at York County Community College to help you successfully navigate the college experience. We created this online version of orientation so that all students (online, in class, returning and new students) would have access to this important information. I strongly encourage all students to check it out as it highlights valuable resources that will improve your experience here at YCCC.

It is strongly encouraged of new students and encouraged for those students who are coming back to YCCC after a long break to attend New Student Orientation (NSO) in person or complete the online version posted above. NSO in-person sessions take place before the start of each semester (fall, spring, summer).
NSO sets students up for success as they begin their education at YCCC. Data shows that students who attend NSO not only progress to graduation more successfully, but their overall GPAs are higher.
At NSO you will:
- meet key staff members and resources
- meet other new students
- chat with faculty
- receive an introduction to YCCC electronic communication tools
- learn the basics of utilizing Blackboard
- understand the role of advising in your student success
- get acquainted with campus safety and student involvement options
