As a General Studies student, you may take arts, science, and/or applied courses. General Studies is not a true “program”; it has no structured group of courses. Students can apply later for any of the associate, diploma, or degree options at UCFV. Credit is given for courses recognized by your chosen option. University-level courses can be transferred to another institution. For more details, see Transfer of Credit
