About Placement Tests at UFV
New Registration Policy for UFV Placement Tests
Effective September 1, 2011 registration for the CPT and other UFV placement tests will be available only to active UFV students or applicants to UFV. Prospective and former UFV students may register once they have submitted an application for admission.
