Student Life

Small Community, Big Relationships

YCC is small. You will fully understand when you come to visit us. However, with just under 100 students enrolled, our students are able to connect with peers and faculty unlike any other school in the region.

YCC is committed to growing the whole person: physically, mentally, emotionally, and most imporantly spiritually. This is done through mentorships on campus and in the community, weekly chapel services, and interaction with students from various cultures and backgrounds. During the 2016-2017 school year, YCC was home to students from ten countries, nine states, and four Native American tribes. Over half of our students come from diverse backgrounds.

One thing all students will encounter at YCC: a real and growing relationship with Christ. Whether it be in class, in chapel, on the basketball floor, or in the residence halls, YCC desires to have Christ present in every aspect.

Dining on Campus

“Man does live by bread alone … ” – but it’s served with most meals at YCC.

The YCC food service staff loves students, and loves to make students happy. Whether it’s crazy colors of noodles at Halloween, or an afternoon cookie treat, these ladies make your meal time very enjoyable.

Your meal time at YCC features an ever-changing menu served buffet style. Meals include an entree and salad bar at every noon and supper meal, desserts, and a variety of cold and hot drinks. Breakfast meals include hot griddle items as well as a well-stocked continental breakfast selection.

Meals are purchased as part of your room and board fees, or with a pre-paid card if you do not live on campus.

Four-Day Week

With endless outdoor adventures waiting for you, we choose to hold classes only Monday through Thursday. This also allows you to play or work weekends without any hindrance with class schedules.

Biblically Grounded

We are not ashamed in having Christ as the epicenter for Truth in all things at YCC. Biblically-based teaching is weaved into every class, every day.

Professional Degrees

Even though YCC is historically a ministry college, we now offer you professional degrees in Business, Exercise Science, and Music & Worship. We hope you see a Psychology degree by Fall 2018.

Area Attractions

Off campus, YCC students enjoy a close proximity to the largest movie theater in the state, several restaurants and shops, and a theme park with miniature golf, go-carts, climbing wall, and laser tag. The campus is less than 10 minutes from a large mall and downtown Billings, and is less than an hour from excellent skiing, hiking, fishing, and camping venues.
