The Office of of Student Development will begin sending START registration information to students who have paid their deposit in early March. Prospective students should complete the admissions process and submit their deposits promptly for priority consideration. Once you receive registration materials, complete the card and return it as soon as possible.
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.
On day one of each START session, parents and guardians are encouraged to attend parent orientation sessions, which are specifically designed to address the topics related to having a student enrolled at YHC. Participation for parents 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. On Friday, parents will also have opportunities to meet faculty and staff who will be interacting with their student on a regular basis.
Students who plan to enroll as residential students will stay overnight in campus housing during the START visit. Students who plan to commute are not required to stay in campus housing during START, but may request accommodation if desired. Campus housing is not available for family members during the orientation visit. Click here for information on area accommodations.
We know that you will need to contact various offices on campus as you prepare to attend YHC, so we compiled a list of the most important phone numbers for new students.
