Entrance Requirements

Students must have 30 post-secondary credits of which nine must be university-level credits, including three credits of English composition or other writing courses. Please note, a minimum of 2.0 GPA is required for entry into the degree program.

For the purposes of this degree, post-secondary credits will be interpreted as credits that are transcripted by UFV as 100-level or higher.  Check the UFV Academic Calendar for further information.

What this means is…

It might be possible that the academic, vocational and trade credits you have already acquired will apply to this program.

To ensure your success, we require that you have a course in academic writing.

A 2.0 Grade Point Average means that you will have at least a “C” average at the time of admission.

Your credits from other educational institutions will be assessed before your admission to the program is approved. Please arrange to have all your official transcripts ready to submit with your application.
