Financial Aid – If not yet done, complete your student's FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov. York's school code is 002567. A completed FAFSA is required before your student can receive any financial aid. Need assistance? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Enrollment Deposit and Housing: After your student pays their enrollment deposit, they will be able to complete their housing form. Then they will receive a packet including info about housing, dining, and more. Please make sure your student has their YC student ID number handy when completing these forms. It can be found in their acceptance packet. Need assistance? Contact your admissions recruiter.
