Educational Advising

Educational advisors are available to help current and potential students explore post-secondary options both at UCFV and elsewhere. Advisors assist students in developing individual education plans by explaining career and program requirements, institutional processes, and course transfer. Through confidential individual appointments, advisors provide assistance in refining goals and objectives, understanding available choices, and assessing the consequences of alternative actions.

Students may book full educational planning appointments or have quick questions answered during short drop-in sessions.

Educational advisors also offer free one- and two-hour information workshops on various topics.


For new students:
