A UFV staff will contact you by phone to book your entrance exam. There is no fee to take the two-hour exam, which evaluates your reading and math skills.

No more than three attempts will be made to contact you. Be sure to respond to any message you receive to book your exam. If no one has contacted you two weeks after you submitted a complete application, please phone 604-847-5448 to check your application status.

Wait for the next intake in which there is space

Upon meeting the program requirements, you will be waitlisted for the programs next start date. Note that you will be added to the waitlist in order of the date in which all entrance requirements are met. 

Approximately three months prior to the program start date, we will begin offering seats.

Before classes start we will contact you with registration procedures. If we cannot reach you after three attempts, your seat will go to the next applicant on the list.
