Resources for students
Successful learning involves more than quality programs and instruction. UFV offers a variety of support services to help you get the most out of your education.
Academic advisors at UFV are always on hand to discuss your educational choices. They can help you set goals, make a program plan, select courses, find out how to meet entrance requirements, understand transfer credits, choose upgrading options, prepare to transfer to another university, or change programs. Book an appointment with an advisor.
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is a flexible assessment process that helps you obtain credit in a course or program for what you already know or can do. Qualified specialists at UFV assess the skills and knowledge that you have already acquired against learning outcomes of UFV courses. Learn more about PLAR.
The Disability Resource Centre operates as the central contact point for students with disabilities at UFV. We are here to smooth the path for students with disabilities as they move through their academic career. Services for students focus upon providing accommodations and services to help meet academic demands, while promoting student responsibility and self-advocacy. Learn more about Disability Services.
