START Frequently Asked Questions


When do I register for START?

The Office of of Student Development will begin sending START registration information to students who have paid their deposit in early April. Prospective students should complete the admissions process and submit their deposits promptly for priority consideration. Once you receive registration materials, complete the online form as soon as possible.

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. Click here for information on area accommodations.

Who can I contact with important questions?

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. View the 2015 START flyer for details.

For more information, email the Office of of Student Development or call (706) 379-5118.
