Partnering in Student Success
We value the expertise and collaboration of our colleagues in the guidance community. Together, we look forward to supporting students throughout the exciting process of applying to university! From discovering our programs, to preparing their application, to making a successful post-secondary transition, we love to meet and welcome each new cohort of future students.
We offer a variety of information sessions, open houses, tours and program-specific learning opportunities throughout the year to help students see how York University is a great fit for their goals.
Please share our digital handbooks with your student communities:
Supporting Your Students
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
If a student is admitted to York and has a diagnosed physical, sensory, medical, learning, or mental health disability, we encourage them to connect with York University's Student Accessibility Services as soon as possible after accepting an offer of admission. The SAS team will connect students with an accessibility counsellor to arrange for academic accommodations.
International Arrival Support
The York International team offers information and support on immigration, work permits, health services, working as an international student and more. Most importantly, they are committed to helping students from around the world feel welcome, safe and connected to their new community.
Transitioning to University
We'll work together to set your students up for success from the moment they accept our offer of admission! We provide a variety of academic, orientation and transition services to ensure students feel confident and prepared for the academic, social and cultural changes of starting university.

We facilitated over 8,500 experiential learning opportunities last year, including co-ops, community placements, field courses and internships, as well as posting over 10,000 student employment opportunities.
Our Career Education & Development team provides job search and career exploration webinars, networking events with employers and 1-1 career support to get your student job-ready.
