  1. Apprenticeship students who withdraw or are terminated from a program due to absenteeism or academic performance will not receive a refund.

Withdrawal due to medical or extenuating reasons:

  1. Apprenticeship students who withdraw due to a medical or extenuating circumstance must submit the Withdrawal for Medical or Compassionate Reasons form with a medical note from a physician to the Registrar’s Office. Determination of any refund will be based on this information.

Okanagan College cancels a class:

When Okanagan College cancels an apprenticeship program or changes a program schedule, the apprenticeship student may apply for a full refund of his/her tuition or to have his/her tuition transferred to a future intake of the program. 

Note:  All refunds, whether prior to the start of class or after, are processed and paid to the Apprenticeship student unless there is a “sponsorship” letter on file.
