York Technical College is a progressive institution and, as such, even many “traditional” courses use various aspects of computer technology. Students should expect to use computer tools such as the Internet, email, electronic library databases, D2L (an online learning management system), WebAdvisor, and various software packages. The specific expectations for individual courses are detailed in the course materials from the instructor. The course descriptions listed on the following pages are general descriptions of course content.
As you consider the courses to select, please keep in mind that appropriate placement test scores are required for math, reading, and English courses and that some departments require a minimum grade to enter the next course level. Students may take higher level courses than required in their program of study as long as all course prerequisites are met.
ENG 032 , MAT 033 , and RWR 032 are developmental courses and do not count for credit in any program. Effective with the Fall 2018 semester, ENG 032 must be taken concurrently with a co-requisite section of ENG 101 or ENG 155 . RDG 100 is a prerequisite course leading to competencies needed for higher level courses, such as RDG 101 . This course WILL NOT fulfill credit requirements for the general education or elective credit in associate degree programs or for LIFE Scholarships. All elective credits in associate degree programs must be chosen from courses that are at or above the entry level required by the program. Therefore, it is important for the student to see an advisor each semester to assist in selecting appropriate courses so that the student can make progress toward the program goal.
Exemption tests are available for a number of courses. Contact an admissions counselor (new students) or academic advisor (current students) for more information about exemption routes to consider.
