Apprenticeship Student Refund Policy

Withdrawals prior to the start of class:

Apprenticeship students who withdraw from an apprenticeship program prior to the start date of the class may apply for a refund under the following conditions and deadlines:

  • 60+ days prior to the start date of the class: a non-refundable fee of $200 will be withheld
  • 59-15 days prior to the start date of the class: a refund of half the deposit, equal to the full tuition and student fees, may be granted. A minimum $200 will be withheld.
  • 14-0 days prior to the start date of the class: only the ancillary fee portion of the deposit is refundable.

Apprenticeship students who are deemed, by Okanagan College, to be inadmissible to attend the program will receive a full refund of the deposit.

Withdrawals after the class start date:

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:
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 their deposit or have the deposit transferred to a future intake of the program within the same fiscal year.

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.
