You’ve Been Accepted To York! Now What?
Finding out you’ve been accepted to York is an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Congratulations! You’re ready to start the next chapter of your life!
Take a moment to celebrate, shout, hug strangers, or whatever it is you do when you’re totally thrilled!
Once you’ve had your moment, take a deep breath and get ready to tackle the next steps in your journey to becoming a York University student.
There are conditions of your offer that you need to be aware of.
Your first step is to look over the details of what your offer entails.
– Access your MyFile account, which is where you’ll find a detailed description of the offer.
– If you see the word “conditional,” don’t panic. It could mean that you’ve been accepted based on the grades you received for grade 11 and keeping your marks up for grade 12 is required for admission. It’s also possible that you’re missing some necessary prerequisites for the program you wish to enter, or you may simply be missing paperwork.
– Read the wording of your offer very carefully so that you don’t miss anything. In the same way, pay close attention to any admission-related correspondence you receive from the university and take any action they request of you in a timely manner.
– After making sure you understand all the information, you’re ready to accept the offer, which you’ll also do through MyFile. You have until June 1, 2017, to respond but the earlier you accept, the better. You’ll want to make sure you get into the classes you wish to take!
Fees And Courses
You’ve been extended an offer to attend York and you’ve accepted. The next order of business is to choose the classes that you want to take.
– First, log in to MyFile and you’ll see either, “Book/Manage my enrollment appointment,” or “Book/Manage my appointment.” It’s possible that you’ll need to have an appointment with an advisor to choose your classes. If you see “Learn When Your Online Enrollment Begins,” then you’ll receive instructions on how to enroll in your classes online and your program is a part of YU Start, a transitional program with many helpful resources. Don’t worry, even if you don’t enroll in classes via YU Start, you’ll still have access to the resources.
– A $300 registration fee is required after you start your class enrollment process. This must be paid by telephone or online. Paying this fee opens up the opportunity for you to find a residence, among other fun opportunities.
The whole topic of tuition can be daunting. Here are some directions as to how to manage:
– Your initial action will be to fill out a Student Financial Profile, done through MyFile. This will give the university the necessary information in order to know how to help you.
– Your next step should be to take a look at all of the scholarships that the university offers.
– If needed, check into the Ontario Student Assistance Program. This is a way to borrow money from the government to fund your education. Keep in mind that you’ll have to pay this money back after you graduate and have a job.
This overview will help you to get started on your journey but checking out the university’s site for future students will give you more in-depth information.
