The process by which students are screwed over by administrators and student advisers for not fulfilling complicated and obtuse university class requirements.

These requirements are often absurd, often being a half-year class that is only offered every other decade and is taught on a different campus altogether, and is sometimes seen as being a cheap final cash grab from the school.

The term usually applies to university students who are attempting to finally graduate and join the real world.
My adviser told me I had all my classes but when I applied to graduate, I totally got Yorked. Looks like it's back to school for me.

(verb) To be yorked is reminiscent of being jacked, dooped, taken for your money, ripped off or jerked around.

(adj) Yorky. When somethign is yorky it means it's chinsey, sketchy, shady or looks/sounds.seems like a rip off. Not to be confused with Yorkie - a York U student.

The word partly originated from the poor academic image associated with York University and a steep financial price you pay for your education there and party from the institution's seemingly random yet systematic ability to screw over its students while denying any involvement and offering no help.

York has a business-first attitude and puts students along with their education last. It mass produces students like McDonald's does BigMacs, with the same intrinsic value.

Jake: Dude, Why would you see it? You yourself even said that the trailer looked yorky.
