Pursue Higher Education at No Cost to You

At York Tech, we believe in making quality education and practical career preparation as accessible as possible. That's why in addition to having the lowest tuition rates in the area, we're partnering with the South Carolina Workforce Industry Needs Scholarship program, as well as other funding sources to offer college at no cost. These funds are "last-in" funds and will be applied to a student's account after all other financial aid sources have been exhausted.

With no-cost college, you'll have the freedom to choose from over 90 programs led by instructors with expert-level knowledge—some of whom have years of experience in their fields. Even better, you'll have the opportunity to earn a credential or degree if you choose to enroll in a high-demand field such as manufacturing, healthcare, computer science and information technology, transportation, distribution and logistics, or construction. Our academic and trade programs provide you not only with the qualifications to pursue a career in your dream field but also with plenty of opportunities to network and land a job even before you graduate. 

You've got what it takes to pursue a career. What's stopping you?
