Any student who is contemplating applying to or
Any student who is contemplating applying to or attending to apply to York College of Pennsylvania should be aware that the accreditation of YCP is under serious review by The Pennsylvania Department of Higher Education. I have a pending lawsuit again the school for 10 million dollars for harassment, defamation, lost income, personal pain and suffering.

If you take gamble with your education to go there, drown yourself in federal student loan debt to do so, you may very well end up with a degree from an unaccredited college.

The current Dean of academic affairs, Dominic Delli Carpini, is a severely depressed man with the ethics of a worm. The Humanities Dept in its entirety is corrupt, unaccomplished and concerned only with their salaries, their place at the academic trough.

Any school in the region would offer a better education at a cheaper cost--any education from an accredited college at the very least.

York City, the neighborhood around York College, is an extremely dangerous area--drugs deals, rape, murder are common. No one will tell you this at YCP, of course.

Finally, you should know that I have an article forthcoming in The Chronicle of Higher Education entitled "The Rise and Fall of York College." Wherever you go after YCP, you'll be asked about this article and why you ever attended such a dying, corrupt institution. Dr. William R. Miller

This school only caresNot so bright
This school only cares about your money. The administration does not care about the opinions of the students or is helpful to the students.

If you are looking for a college toBrightPolitical Science
If you are looking for a college to go to as a freshman do not go here. I loved this campus the first two years of being here, but things are changing very fast. Greek life will probably dissolve in the next couple of years due to the coordinator and the school cares more about money and the amount of incoming freshman then a students well being. It is so sad to say, but this summer there was a shooting and the school took a couple of days to even respond, most likely because they want people to go here instead of caring about the well being of people who already go here.The school will find anyway to gain money. Another example would be it is hard to even live off-campus as a senior. If they do not have enough incoming freshman they force you to pay the room and board fees even if you have the credits to apply for off campus. The students here are very friendly though and everyone is very fun and outgoing if it was not for the school administration and their motives the school would be better.
