Selecting Your Courses
Many programs at Okanagan College have set schedules, that is, you don't need to choose your courses. Other programs, like Associate of Arts or Science or other university transfer programs, require that you register in the courses. If you need to choose and register in individual courses for your program, you'll receive a registration letter with details from the College. Before registering for your fall and winter semesters, it's important to make sure that you're registering in the right courses. Review the program details in the calendar.
