Okanagan College will be delivering a mix of online and face-to-face courses for fall 2020. Most students can expect programs to be delivered in either a fully online or a hybrid (a combination of online and face-to-face) format this fall.
We are a community of learning, rich with cultural diversity and academic support. With smaller class sizes, industry experienced professors, hands-on learning with co-op and practicum opportunities, and affordable tuition, we put learner success at the heart of everything we do.
That's what we like to call the OC advantage.
