Indigenous Student Policy

Students are supported through the process of applying for numerous financial awards. Indigenous applicants are encouraged to visit York’s Aboriginal/Indigenous Admission Statement page.
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.
View York’s mature student policy to find out how you can transition to university.
If you are interested in transferring to York from another university or college, visit York’s website for information about its transfer policies and supports.
You can also find out if you are eligible for course transfers through the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer, an organization that provides information about credit transfers in Ontario.
