Info session on Nov. 2 shines spotlight on education and careers
Okanagan College Media Release

Okanagan College is throwing open the doors of its Kelowna campus and offering an information session and open house for prospective students on Sunday, Nov. 2 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Secondary students and their parents, along with adult learners, are invited to attend the event—which is being held in conjunction with the College’s Career Fair—to find out about program offerings, fees, and admission requirements for Okanagan College.  

“The information sessions help interested students gain an understanding of the benefits of Okanagan College’s learning environment, which is characterized by small class sizes and a low student-instructor ratio. They will also learn how the College sets them up for success when they enter the workforce or transfer to university,” says Heather Schneider, Regional Dean of the Central Okanagan. 

Instructors and current students will also be on site to answer questions and help students learn about the realities of studying at the College.  

At 1 p.m., College Prep 101 is taking place in the Lecture Theatre (S104). This session will go into detail about the application process, accessing scholarships and bursaries, applying for student loans, and transferring credits to B.C. universities.

Students who put their name on a list at the Registrar’s Office during the day’s events to apply for a program when applications open on Nov. 3 will have the $30 application fee waived, if they actually apply for the program before Nov. 7.

In addition, everyone attending the campus’s Career Fair will have the opportunity to enter a draw for a $500 tuition credit.
