You can begin your university studies at UCFV and then transfer to many different arts, science, and professional degrees at other universities. In order to do so, you must choose courses that are fully transferable to the receiving institution. Obtain calendars from the university to which you wish to transfer, and consult with a UCFV educational advisor in Student Services to assist with course planning.
If you plan to take UCFV courses with the intention of transferring later, you may apply for one of the following (whichever suits your goals most closely):
• Arts Studies
In many arts, science, and applied subjects you can complete a four-year bachelor’s degree at UCFV; for others you can complete one or two years at UCFV and then transfer to finish the degree elsewhere.
The transferability of UCFV lower-level courses to B.C. universities and university-colleges is listed in the B.C. Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) online transfer guide at www.bctransferguide.ca. BCCAT also publishes a booklet, “Tips for Transfer” available online or from Student Services. This booklet includes a transfer planning checklist, answers questions about transfer, and provides many useful hints for transfer students. .
For transfer of upper-level courses, or transfer of courses outside B.C., consult the institution you wish to attend.
In order to do your UCFV course planning, you must be familiar with the degree program at the university to which you wish to transfer. A UCFV educational advisor can assist you in understanding the university calendars, and planning your UCFV courses.
University regulations vary with respect to transfer, but the following guidelines generally apply:
• Students usually complete a full first year (30 credits/10 courses) before transferring.
