In order to apply for admission to York College, you will need to go to the CUNY website, create a portal account and click on the APPLY ONLINE link. You must have an email account in order to begin the application process.

Your eligibility to attend York College will be determined based on your complete academic profile, i.e. all courses taken and grades received. And, while the SAT (or ACT) is not required for admission, we strongly urge you to take this exam and submit your scores. By so doing, you may be eligible for a waiver from part or all of our proficiency test requirements.

Note: All applications MUST be submitted online (no paper applications are available).
