Indigenous Student Policy
York supports the academic success of Indigenous students through its Centre for Indigenous Student Services, which provides student services in a culturally supportive environment. Students are supported through the process of applying for numerous financial awards.
Alternative Admissions and Transition Programs
The Transition Year Program (TYP) at York University is a special access program for youth (ages 19 and above) and adults who are passionate about attending university.
TYP provides an opportunity to transition to university for those who have previously experienced social and financial barriers to accessing formal education.
If you have not attended a high school or college full time for at least 2 years, you might be considered a mature student.
