Tuition and fees

Paying for college

We know post secondary education is an investment. We are here to help you navigate the financial part of your learning, from advising you on best practices, helping you with a loan or applying for awards we have available. 

When are my fees due?

In general, full fees are due three weeks before classes begin. 

For programs with courses that start at the beginning of a semester, your account must be paid in full by the fee payment deadline. If you add or change courses after the fee payment deadline resulting in additional charges to your account, you are required to pay all fees at the time of registration.

Online bill payment is also available with no additional convenience fee charges.

Students who do not pay their fees on time may be removed from their courses and taken off waitlists. Those seats will be made available to other students.

Yes, if you do so before the end of the add/drop period and space still remains in the classes you want to take. You must register in person and pay your full fees at the time your register.

Re-registration into a Distance Education course after the last day to register needs to be approved by the tutor. Please contact Distance Education at: distanceed@okanagan.bc.ca

Historically, some students have paid their deposits to 果酱视频, registered in courses, decided not to attend, and have not notified us of their change in plans. When the date to pay fees occurred after the last day to register, seats held by these non-attendees were never available to other students. In order to give all students the best chance to get the classes they need, we need to remove students who won鈥檛 be attending, so fees are now due before classes begin.

If you have an approved student loan, 果酱视频 will be contacted by the applicable province to confirm your enrolment. If you are registered in the appropriate program and course load, and your enrolment has been confirmed, a hold will be placed on your account. You will receive an email advising you that a hold has been placed on your account.

Generally, we confirm B.C. student loans 26 days before the start of classes. Once the hold is on your account, you will not be dropped from your courses.

To check the status of your account, login to your myOkanagan account, click on the Student tab, and choose Student Records from the Online Services channel. Once there, choose View Holds. If we have confirmed your enrolment for student loan purposes, you will see a hold stating 鈥淪tudent Loan Approved鈥 along with the approved dates.
It is your responsibility to pay your fees in full within five (5) business days of receiving your student loan funds. Students who do not pay their fees on time will be removed from their courses and taken off waitlists.

If you do not have a hold on your account, you must pay your fees by the fee payment deadline.

You must ensure that 果酱视频 receives your sponsorship funding letter at least two days before the payment deadline. If we have your sponsorship letter on file, you will not be dropped from classes and we will invoice your sponsor directly.

Payment SCAM Alert

We have been alerted that there are companies contacting students to offer a discount on their tuition.  They ask for your student ID to make a payment on your account through PayMyTuition (PMT), and ask you to pay them a reduced amount after you can see the payment on your 果酱视频 (果酱视频) account.  The card owner subsequently disputes the charge with their credit card company, causing PMT to reverse the payment on your 果酱视频 account.  This puts your 果酱视频 account in bad standing, resulting in a HOLD on your account, reducing your access to many 果酱视频 services, and may cause you to be dropped from classes or delay graduation if you are at the end of your program.

Payments to 果酱视频 student accounts should never be made by unrelated third parties.  You should not share your student ID with outside parties.  If you are uncertain if a service is legitimate, please contact the International Education department so we can assist.

Be wary of any person offering to make a tuition payment on your behalf or promising a discount on payment. If the offer sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is.

Sponsorship, RESPs and funding agencies

Sponsorship

If you are sponsored to come to school, by an employer, Band, or government agency for example (the sponsorship must be from a third party 鈥 it cannot be a relative), your sponsor must provide a letter to 果酱视频. 果酱视频 will use this letter to bill your sponsor.

The sponsor letter should contain the following:

  • Full legal name as you are registered at 果酱视频. If you are registered under a different name this will make it difficult for us to determine who the sponsorship is for.
  • Your student number.
  • What type of charges the sponsor is willing to pay on your behalf providing as much detail as possible. These charges could include the non-refundable tuition deposit, tuition fees, mandatory fees, student association fees, books, supplies, material fees or any other billing items.
  • The maximum allowable amount the sponsor is willing to pay per term (if there is a maximum).

The sponsor should also send a copy of the letter to you, so you have a copy on file if you need to show it to the Registrar鈥檚 office or Bookstore.

Note: Information will not be released to your sponsor without an information release form signed by you.

All sponsorship letters and documentation can be emailed to accountsreceivable@okanagan.bc.ca, faxed or mailed to (regardless of the campus you will be attending):
