Girl with a pen in hand, looking at a computer with a cat beside herDid you know York is making it even easier for you to get access to financial aid, awards, scholarships and graduate funding? Coming this July, a new solution is launching to help students find awards, apply for scholarships and view funding information – all in one place.

Before it launches, we want to make sure we get it right – and we need your help! You are invited to participate in testing the new solution, and in return, you’ll earn a $100 gift card for your valuable time!

It’s important that this new solution is intuitive, easy to navigate and has clear instructions on how to complete key steps. Your feedback will help us ensure that come July, students can jump in right away and start reaping the benefits.

The testing will take place between Wednesday, April 17 and Wednesday, May 15, and will be held virtually or through live testing sessions. You’ll have the chance to log into the system, try out the functionality available and provide feedback.

To express your interest in participating, please complete the application linked below by Wednesday, April 10 at 11:59 p.m. The application only takes two minutes to fill out and we’ll let you know by Monday, April 15 if you’ve been selected.

Please note that your participation will be required for a minimum of four hours over the testing period to be able to claim your $100 gift card.

Thank you for being an important part of this exciting transformational journey! Learn more about the Student Tester Community, and with any questions, please contact the Student Systems Renewal Program team at
