Mission

York College enriches lives and enables students to grow as passionate, engaged learners with the confidence to realize their intellectual and human potential as individuals and global citizens.

Vision

York College's hallmark academic programs in liberal arts and sciences will be recognized as centers of excellence within CUNY, attracting and graduating some of the best and most highly motivated students from New York City and the greater New York area. We will be the first choice for prospective CUNY students interested in the health professions, allied health sciences, and business, including aviation management. York College will also establish itself as a model for enabling first generation college students to earn an undergraduate degree, and will fulfill students' individual academic goals while preparing them for graduate education and the competitive marketplace.

Students are at the center of their own learning at York College. We offer multiple opportunities for student engagement, inquiry and research-based scholarship, and experiential learning. York maintains a vibrant campus where students actively participate in extra-curricular programs and collaborate with faculty and academic peers whose backgrounds are distinctly different from their own. The College has a dynamic student life with athletic and visual/performing arts programs, special interest clubs and social organizations where students develop enduring relationships and refine interpersonal skills.

The College will enable faculty and students to pursue their highest goals and foster their development as individuals and professionals. York College will be an attractive place to work, which will draw highly qualified candidates for its academic, executive, professional and administrative positions. The multicultural nature of our sustainable academic and social environments enriches the collegiate experience for all students, faculty and staff.

York College will be a magnetizing institution within the Queens community where students and graduates are mobilized as advocates/participants in continuous civic engagement. Our strong alumni network supports our programs, serves as ambassadors and donates time, talent and capital to advance our mission. Our Continuing and Professional Education function attracts students, graduates, individuals and professionals in pursuit of continued personal and professional development. Our business outreach activities engage the business community to strengthen our town-grown relationships.

    Terrible customer service from York College. Class was supposed to start feb 3rd. They rescheduled it to feb 24th. Then a few days before that class they rescheduled until April 7th. Jump to last week, and they completely cancel the course. I am now struggling to find another affordable class for my daughter in queens. I wish I could have just attended the class. I don't even know how I'll get refunded for the course.

    I enjoyed leaner ASL and Pro. Shirley Nunally was so efficient and thorough. She made the class interesting and introduced the deaf to me in a way I never considered before. If it's possible for her to teach a level 2 class I am interested . Thank you, when will I recieve my certificate of completion. I need it for school.

    This class was interesting and challenging. The teacher was encouraging, patient and made sure we understood what she was saying, even offering to explain in different terms.
  • Natural Hair Care and Braiding Workshop I

    Anonymous review on 7/9/2018
    Overall, I greatly appreciated this course. To learn about the history of our and to be able to be hands on with our mannequins. What I do wish for was more one on one time with the instructor, so I could have fully master the braiding technique. I also believe that environment plays a part in learning. The classroom was way too cold and the chairs were really small, so it took away from the concentrating fully on hair. I would still recommend because it was a valuable lesson taught and this is a great investment towards the person braiding! The $25 hair kit, you can definetly get at the dollar store for around $10 bucks or less!

    This class did not start as originally listed. No one from Coursehorse informed me. Please also note that the end date for the class is June 2nd. Regardless, I love the class. The instructor is knowledgeable and full of life. Please inform when there is an intermediate class.

    The best thing about York College was its professors. They were always willing to help and genuinely wanted you to do well. If you did not it was no fault of theirs. I loved the convenience and diversity of this College. It tends to get bad reviews because of where it is located but some of the smartest and most hard working people I have ever met attended York College. It caters to the needs of all age groups and all social classes. Thank you for giving me somewhere I could grow and realize what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

  • Natural Hair Care and Braiding Workshop I

    Anonymous review on 10/9/2017
    The teacher is not that great in conveying her art to the students. She knows her stuff but can’t teach it well. I came away disappointed. I was going to enroll in course 2 when I first started the class but now have changed my mind. In addition, she always came to class late (at least 30 minutes). I felt like I was being ripped off because she still ended class at its regular time. I wish there was more classes out there that could teach you how to braid correctly. Thumbs down on the class. The only positive aspects of the class were the students. We were able to bond together and teach each other whenever we were confused.
