Steps for a smooth transition into OC

Access your online tools

myOkanagan is the main portal to access web-based information like student records, course schedule and email. Check your account summary (student records > account) and course schedule (student records > registration) and confirm your class locations if you are in an on campus class. You will also find student email in your myOkanagan account.

Moodle is the College’s online learning platform providing access to online course materials and more.

Need info on logging in to these tools? View the Learning tools and resources section in the Student handbook.

Student COVID-19 safety training and self-declaration

It’s important that we all play our part to keep the OC community safe during the pandemic. In your Moodle, you will find a course called “Student COVID-19 Safety Training - Winter 2021.”

You must complete this course and the COVID-19 self-declaration before coming on campus for the first time.

Online Orientation in Moodle

Visit your Moodle account to find the OC Student Orientation. Complete the general section first to unlock your program-specific session. You will be registered into the course which must be completed before you begin your classes.
