START Frequently Asked Questions


When do I register for START?

The Student Success Center will mail a START packet to all deposit paid students in mid-April. Prospective students should complete the admissions process and submit their deposits promptly to receive START information in the mail. Register for START on YHC Connect under the “New Students” tab.

Which START should I attend?

All START sessions are identical, so pick the one that is the most convenient for you and your family. Just remember to register early because some sessions will fill up fast.

My parents have already visited campus. Do they need to come to START?

On day one of each START session, family members are encouraged to attend parent START sessions, which are specifically designed to address the topics related to having a student enrolled at YHC. Participation for family members is not mandatory, but is strongly encouraged. Discussion topics include academic expectations, student health, campus safety, expected student behavior and overall adjustment to college life.

Where will I stay during START?

Students stay overnight in campus housing during the START visit. Campus housing is not available for family members during the orientation visit.
