Apply via EPBC



How do I apply online to Okanagan College?

To apply, please go directly to our EducationPlannerBC (EPBC) application portal at: https://apply.educationplannerbc.ca/okanagan.


How many programs can I apply to?

You can apply to two programs or intakes for the $30 application fee. After you apply once and pay the fee, the subsequent screen will provide you a limited time option to apply to a second program or intake at no charge. Once you leave this screen, you cannot navigate back and would have to pay another application fee if you apply again.

How many applications and how many programs per term can I apply to on EPBC?

Each applicant will be limited to two programs or intakes per application.  You will be offered admission to ALL programs/intakes you qualify for but you can only accept one.

What if I want to apply to more than two programs?

You can apply again but are required to pay another application fee.

I am a new applicant who has recently applied to Okanagan College for the first time and I want to change one of the programs I’ve applied to. Do I have to submit a new application and pay an additional application fee?

Depending on the program applicants may have to apply again as admission requirements vary by program. Additional applications will require an application fee. However, there are some exceptions and you should check with admissions@okanagan.bc.ca for further information.
