Please refer to the current UFV Online Calendar for the most up-to-date information. 

Entrance requirements:

  1. B.C. secondary school graduation or equivalent, Principles of Math 12 (B or better), Chemistry 11, Chemistry 12 and Physics 11 (Physics 12 is recommended) Students must also meet at least one of the entrance requirements for Engl 105, such as a B or better in English 12.

  2. Applicants are no longer required to attend an information session, but they will be contacted by e-mail and MUST respond in a timely fashion. Failure to respond will be interpreted as a choice to not enter the program. The e-mail will contain an invitation for a face-to-face optional interview.

Note 1:

If you are currently completing these course requirements, submit an interim transcript with your application.

Note 2:

Students should note the prerequisites for the required ENGL 105 course.

Note 3:

To successfully complete the Engineering Transfer program, a student must be academically strong. This program is best suited to students with a B average or better.

How to apply:

Submit the application fee along with your UFV application for admission form to the Admissions and Records (A&R) office. Application forms are available from any A&R or Student Services office. You can also print Application for Admission form from our website here, or you can apply directly through the internet at


Additional documents required for a complete application:

A “reserved seat” is a place in a course that can only be used by someone admitted to a specific program. Engineering students have a very crowded schedule, and UFV finds a combination of courses and times that will allow students to complete the ETP in two semesters. Some students may have earlier registration dates, but will not be allowed to register in the places reserved for engineering students. Thus ETP students are guaranteed access to the courses they need; any other student may register in these courses, but as classes fill some students may not be able to get a schedule with all the needed courses.

In order to retain access to reserved seats, ETP students must register in at least six of the required engineering courses each semester. Students who are admitted to the Engineering program but register in fewer than six courses will be removed from the ETP and may not claim reserved seats. In general, Engineering reserved seat status is only available for first-year courses and only for first year students.

As is true for most reserved seats, ETP seats are released for general admission if they are not taken by the ETP program students. ETP students only have a 72 hours window starting from their assigned registration time to access these reserved seats. This is one of the ways UFV tries to make our courses as available as possible to interested students.
