Admission Advice

1. If you do not meet the English entrance requirements, it is still possible to be admitted to the program subject to:

  • completing the English entrance requirements within your first year of studies
  • registration being restricted to courses for which you satisfy the prerequisites

2. Similarly, if you don't meet the Math requirements it's still possible to be admitted to the program. However:

  • registration is restricted to courses where the prerequisite has been met. This means that registration in CHEM 111, COSC 111, MATH 112 and PHYS 111 is not possible until the Math entrance requirement is met.
  • registration in MATH 120 (Pre-Calculus) is strongly advised. Successful completion of this course meets the Math entrance requirement. This must be done in your first year of studies to remain in the program.
3. Students enrolling for the first time at Okanagan College who have completed or are registered in a secondary school Calculus course are eligible to write the UBC-SFU-UVic-UNBC Calculus Exam. Students who pass this exam will be given the option of receiving credit for MATH 112 with a grade equal to the grade obtained on the challenge exam or taking MATH 112 for credit. There is an $88 non-refundable fee for this exam.
