York Technical College offers students a rich selection of both credit
and noncredit classes. Students who enroll in credit classes earn credit hours that may be applied to
degrees, diplomas, and certificates at the College. In many cases, these credits
can also be transferred to four-year universities and colleges. In contrast,
noncredit courses do not count toward a degree, but can be used to further your
career and/or personal goals.
All York Tech students are assigned an Academic Advisor. 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. Your advisor can be found in WebAdvisor at Student > Academic Profile > My Profile.
To make an appointment with your academic advisor, contact the Call Center at (803) 327-8008.
WebAdvisor provides password-protected access to a variety of important academic and financial information, online registration, program evaluation (degree audit), and student forms. Students should check WebAdvisor on a regular basis.
Username Your username is the first initial and last name in lowercase and the last four digits of your student ID number (ie: jsmith1234).
Password Your password is your six-digit birth date (e.g., 051281).
Option 1: Search and Register for Credit Classes
Select this option to view classes that can be used to meet the requirements of a degree, diploma, or certificate granted by the College. Students who anticipate receiving Federal or State financial assistance, including Lottery Tuition Assistance, should choose this option.
Option 2: Search and Register for Continuing Education Classes
Select this option to view noncredit short classes and/or certificates leading to professional certifications, licenses and/or personal enrichment. Also, you can register for classes online. Although college credit is not typically granted, Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded for full participation in certain noncredit programs. CEU records are nationally-recognized, documented proof of your continuing education efforts.
Some YTC courses offer a wait list option during the registration process. If a course you are trying to register is full but has a wait list option, the registration system will automatically ask you if you want to be added to the waitlist.
If a seat becomes available in a waitlisted course, you will receive a message through your Office 365 email account. Is it very important for you to check your email regularly if you are on a wait list! Once the email is sent, you will have just one day to complete the registration process. If the deadline passes and you have not completed the process, the seat will be offered to the next student on the wait list.
Students who have registration holds due to fines, balances due, or other issues cannot be placed on a wait list.
Dropping a Class
The drop period is the first five instructional days of a semester, and the first three instructional days of a mini-session. Students who drop courses for a term within the drop period or whose last date of attendance is within the drop period qualify for 100 percent tuition refund.
Adding a Class
The schedule adjustment period is the first two days of a semester or mini-session. Students should work with their advisors to make approved schedule adjustments. Advisors will consider schedule adjustment requests based on student success and attendance at all scheduled classes.
Withdrawing from a Class
Students may withdraw from a course or courses by notifying their instructor(s). A grade of “W” is assigned if the student’s last date of attendance is on or before midterm of the session. If a student is withdrawing from a course and the last date of attendance is after midterm, the grade assigned may be a “W” or a “WF” based on the instructor’s discretion (Some exceptions apply in disciplinary sanctions and certain programs).
