College Learning Immersion Communities (CLIC)


Welcome to the College Learning Immersion Communities (CLIC). The CLIC seminar is designed especially for first-year students to assist you in developing college survival and success skills as you transition into the college.  

About the Program

This College Learning Immersion Communities (CLIC) seminar provides orientation and facilitates the transition for first-time college students to the college environment, culture, and routine. Students will receive critical information on college services, policies, and procedures, as well as tools to empower them for a successful tenure as an undergraduate student. In addition, they will participate in a learning community organized along their interests with extensive information on academic programs, challenges, advisement, and potential professional careers. Complimenting these they will also gain common learning experiences by incorporating the Common Reader Program in the CILC experience/transition to college. The program will be delivered online for learning communities and facilitated by a peer leader.

The CLIC seminar will have no academic or financial cost to students. The learning community is offered as an online immersion workshop without bearing any academic credits. Being offered as no academic credit immersion workshop it will not incur any financial cost to students. 

The Common Reader Program

The York College Common Reader program is a collaborative initiative of the Office of Academic Affairs and Student Development.  

Each academic year, the college selects a common reader that allows the college community to engage in meaningful discourse around a shared text. For incoming first-year students, this is particularly valuable in easing them into the college experience and helping them feel part of a larger academic community.
