New Student Planning & Registration
If you are a new student, who will be starting for the first time at York Tech, you will work with an Enrollment Counselor to create an academic plan that prepares you to schedule and register for your first term. After you’ve applied and completed the enrollment process, you’re ready to plan and register for your courses.
Get Ready to Register
Once you’re accepted, your enrollment counselor will review your account and select the courses you need for your first term. You will have the option to register for classes by completing the course registration form or by making an appointment in Navigate. Follow the steps below to schedule an appointment.
- Log into Navigate using your YTC username and password.
- Click the “Appointments” tab.
- Choose “Admissions & Academic Planning (NEW students).”
- Note: this appointment option is only for students who are incoming new to the College.
- Select your student type. This should match what you put on your application.
- Then choose an available time!
NOTE: If you are a Dual Enrollment student, your process is different. Please take a look at the Dual Enrollment drop-down below.
Current Students: Meet with an Advisor
All York Tech students are assigned an Academic Advisor. Current students are expected to meet with their assigned advisor at least once per academic year to ensure that they are completing all academic requirements and making satisfactory progress towards completion of degree.
Find your advisor: Log into Navigate and find your advisor listed under Resources > People.
For general advising questions or assistance, contact the Academic Advising & Career Center at (803) 327-8066 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
