Information events

Info Sessions

Thinking about College? Trying to pick a path?

Learn about OC programs, what school may look like in the fall and have your questions answered during virtual info sessions.

Physically distant, but with a personal touch. We're hosting Zoom information sessions for students and parents like you to connect with our staff, explore programs and get the answers you need to make decisions. Okanagan College is here to help. 

Virtual Fairs

OC will take part in multiple virtual fairs this year. Click below to view our schedule for each of these events:

PSBS Virtual Fall 2020 (PSBC or PSI)

Education and Career Fairs Virtual Fall 2020 (ECF)

Out-of-Province Universities Fairs Alberta (OOP)

Jump Start

Jump Start runs during the spring and summer to help prepare new students to make a smooth transition to College.

The virtual program offers information to students, introduces them to their future campus and provides access to free programs and services. We’re here to take the stress out of starting school. We want to help you get the answers you need to set you up for success in the coming semester!

Smart Start and Orientation

Are you a newly admitted student to a program at OC? Smart Start runs during August and Orientation events run during September for the Fall semester and January during the Winter semester.

We've adapted these programs to be virtual or physical distanced, find out more about all the orientation events going on at all of our campuses.
