Upgrading skills assessment
Sometimes the hardest part of going back to school is taking the first step. At Okanagan College, our Adult Upgrading department welcomes all adult students and provides help for each step of the way.
Students can complete upgrading skills assessments online by connecting with a coordinator. This will help you identify what courses to take. Here are some upcoming assessment dates:
- Penticton: Oct. 22, Nov. 23 and Dec. 16
- Kelowna: Oct. 8, Nov. 5, Dec. 3 and Dec. 10
- Vernon/Salmon Arm: please contact the coordinator to schedule an individual online assessment

Upgrading is tuition free
Upgrading classes are free, and there is also financial help available to cover extra costs. The Adult Upgrading Grant (AUG) is provided by the B.C. Government to cover student fees, partial travel costs, unsubsidized child care and school supplies.
