Okanagan College’s Vernon campus is offering three events that can help prospective students navigate their way to higher learning.

Today, the campus is holding a presentation and question-and-answer session called College Prep 101 that will provide information on programs and services at the college, as well as provide information on applying and on what’s involved if you are considering transferring to another institution. It begins at 6:30 p.m.

On Thursday, a program open house from 6 to 8 p.m. will showcase the many different opportunities at Okanagan College. It’s a chance to talk to instructors and employees about what’s being taught, what doors different programs can open, and about career opportunities.

Info sessions are available at two different times Thursday:

n At 6 p.m. you can learn about arts and science, trades, and health programs.

n At 6:45 p.m., there are sessions offered on business, engineering technologies and continuing studies.

On Nov. 16 at 6:30 p.m. the college provides a focused look at returning to education for those would-be students who may have some distance between now and when they were in high school. The session will explore upgrading options, course and programs options, short-term programs and available financial aid.

Parking is free for the events, and application fees will be waived for those who apply Thursday to attend Okanagan College.

For more information, visit or call Tawnya Cameron at 250-545-7291, ext. 2309.
