Changes to Adult Basic Education at Okanagan College




Want to upgrade?

We are here to help with courses, programs, and financial aid

Okanagan College offers a large selection of
adult upgrading courses throughout the year at our various locations to help you achieve your career and education goals. 

A provincial policy announced August 8, 2017 has eliminated tuition for domestic students for Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language programs beginning Sept. 1, 2017. While there is no tuition charged for Adult Basic Education courses for domestic students, there may be financial help available through the provincial government's Adult Upgrading Grant (AUG).

Visit our online resource or connect with one of our financial aid staff at 1-800-767-5492 to find out more. Also check our Frequently Asked Questions (and answers!) .

Apply, enrol and we’ll work to help you achieve your upgrading goals.
