Boasting the resources of a world-class University, Penn State York offers a distinctive education in a student-centered environment. Students and their academic success are the driving forces at the campus, starting with the classes taught by our award-winning faculty and extending to the support provided by our professional staff. Our primary goal is to ensure that our students take advantage of the rich opportunities offered by a Penn State education.
Penn State York offers eighteen two-year and four-year programs that may be completed on our campus, in addition to multiple minors and certificate programs. Students may complete the first two years of their education at Penn State York before leaving to complete their academic program elsewhere at Penn State.
Our office of Continuing Education offers numerous noncredit certificates, professional development offerings and more to meet the workforce needs for area businesses and organizations. Adult learners can find many programs with flexible hours geared to their needs.
