Transition programs are offered to students currently in high school who wish to take college level courses while continuing their high school education. These programs are a collaboration of the School Districts and Okanagan College and both have strong commitments to helping students achieve their academic, career and life goals.
There are two ways to transition to college before you graduate from high school: Dual Credit programs and Concurrent Enrolment.
One of the ways in which students can transition is through a Dual Credit program for secondary students. Dual Credit means that credit earned at the post-secondary level can be used as credit towards high school graduation, click here to access the BC Ministry of Education policy on Dual Credit.
Concurrent Enrolment admission allows a student to get a head start at College by taking up to four courses while still in Grade 11 and 12.
Benefits to Students
AgreementsTo facilitate the admission of secondary students to post-secondary programs, the College has some preferred admission seats for students in some districts to select programs.
