Academic advising at York Technical College is a shared relationship between you and your advisor that will help you have a successful experience at the college. Your academic advisor will assist you in developing and adapting an educational plan that matches your life goals from the time you are accepted into a program, through graduation.

The Academic & Career Advising Center integrates academic advising with a strong career development focus. It serves as a centralized area to provide support and clear direction to students transitioning from one program to another. Visit the Advising Center for career counseling, program changes, and general assistance related to your academic success.
