How do I apply for admission into the Liberal Arts, Associate of Arts, and Bachelor of Arts programs?
Submit your application fee (no fee is required if you currently in an Arts program and are applying to another Arts program) along with your UFV application form (available online at www.ufv.ca/admissions/forms) to Admissions and Records. You can also apply directly through the internet at www.pas.bc.ca.
Additional documents required for a complete application include the following:
- Official transcripts (or interim transcripts) from all post-secondary institutions you have attended showing grade/course achievement as per entrance requirements. If transcripts are being sent directly from the institution(s) attended, please indicate they are on order. To retain your original application date, order early so transcripts arrive within two weeks of the date your application is mailed or submitted.
- You will be advised of an admission decision and, if accepted, will be provided with registration information. A deposit is required when you register. This money will be applied to the tuition fees and is not refundable. Final payment of all course fees is due at the end of the second week of classes.
- In cases where course work is in progress, an admission decision may be made conditional upon completion of academic requirements. Proof of completion of entrance requirements is due the end of the first week in August for the September intake.
