Applicants to diploma, degree and certificate programs whose first language is not English must submit documentation of one of the following:
Applicants who have successfully completed a diploma or degree from an accredited institution at which English is the language of instruction may submit their academic transcript for review by Okanagan College. Subject to verification, this diploma or degree may be used to meet the English requirement for admission to Okanagan College.
Documentation of English language proficiency should be sent directly to International Education, Okanagan College.
In addition to English, all students must meet program specific prerequisites.
Courses for degree and diploma programs begin on the first or second Wednesday in September. Applications are accepted on or after the first working day in November, for entry into a program starting the following September. For the best selection of programs and courses, applicants are encouraged to apply before May 15 for September admission. Applicants may apply between May 15 and June 30, but some programs may be filled by May 15.
Applicants are admitted in chronological order of receipt of their application. Admission requirements (official transcripts, proof of English proficiency and program prerequisites) must be satisfied by the deadlines indicated in the letter of admission (usually eight weeks following the submission of an application) for September admission.
For program intakes other than September, applicants are advised to apply at least three months before the start date.
