I am currently studying at a college/university. Can I transfer my credits to UFV?
Yes, UFV accepts transfer credits from accredited post-secondary institutions. To have your credentials evaluated, you must first submit an application to the university.
In addition to the documents required for the general application, please include the following documents for a transfer credit evaluation:
1. An official transcript detailing the courses you've taken at another school. See guidelines for official transcripts.
2. The post-secondary transcript evaluation requires an additional document evaluation fee. This fee does not apply to Canadian post-secondary institutions.
In some cases, UFV may also ask you to submit course outlines or syllabi (detailed course descriptions) in English. Learn more about course outlines for transfer credit evaluation.
The transfer credit evaluation process can take up to eight weeks. Apply early if you wish to transfer post-secondary credits.
What are the deadlines to apply to UFV? Can I still apply after the deadline?
Admission at UFV for many programs is on a "first applied, first admitted" basis. This means we will continue admitting students until our programs are full. We can still accept applications after the application deadlines if there is space in the program. If there is no space in the program, we may defer your application to the next intake.
Please note that many of our popular programs will fill up prior to the admission deadline, so apply early for best selection. Check Programs Accepting Applications for an up-to-date status on seats available in your program.
I am an international student currently studying at a Canadian high school/post-secondary. Do I still need to provide an English language test score?
No, if you have taken English 12 or a transferrable first-year English course from a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution, then you do not need to provide an additional English language test score with your application.
