Sponsorship, RESPs and more
If you are sponsored to come to school, by an employer, Band, or government agency for example (the sponsorship must be from a third party – it cannot be a relative), your sponsor must provide a letter to Okanagan College. Okanagan College will use this letter to bill your sponsor.
The sponsor letter should contain the following:
The sponsor should also send a copy of the letter to you, so you have a copy on file if you need to show it to the Registrar’s office or Bookstore.
All sponsorship letters should be submitted to Finance prior to the fee payment deadline. Your sponsor will then be billed at a later date.
If you have a Registered Education Savings Plan and wish to access it to pay for your education at Okanagan College, please contact the financial institution that holds your RESPs and inquire what documentation they require from us such as Proof of Enrolment.
Requests for Proof of Enrolment letters signed by the Registrar and all forms that require Okanagan College's input should be submitted to (please allow 7-10 business days for completion):
or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include the following in all requests: your name, student number, phone number and the program you are or will be attending as well as instructions what we should do with the completed letter and/or forms (fax or mail to the bank/institution, fax or mail to you or hold for pick up at one of our campuses - please specify which one if applicable).
If you are dealing with outside agencies please note that these agencies are not sponsors as such and you will be required to complete their application form.
