Secondary school students may take courses at UFV while still working toward secondary school graduation, under the following guidelines:
Once the request is received, the admissions office will:
Note 1: Students should be aware that approval of a concurrent studies request does not guarantee the student a seat in a course.
Note 2: Concurrent studies students who have applied before registration times have been scheduled will register at the end of the regular registration period (later applicants will be scheduled with late applicants according to the date of application).
Approval to register as a concurrent studies student is given for one semester at a time. Students wishing to apply for a subsequent semester of concurrent studies can submit a second concurrent studies request form following the same procedures.
Students in concurrent studies will be treated as regular students in most respects, except that they may not register in a full range of courses, and are not admitted on an ongoing basis. Fees and deadlines are the same as for regular students. Upon completion of courses, students can order an official transcript to be sent to their school.
Students' information is protected under the B.C. Freedom of information and Protection of Privacy Act. Information will only be released to any third party, including parents, if the student has signed a Release of information form.
To continue studying at UFV after high school graduation, concurrent studies students need to apply to a UFV program for the semester following high school graduation. Regular application procedures for high school students should be followed; however, students will be treated as returning UFV students.
Students who have enrolled in concurrent studies at other recognized post-secondary institutions prior to secondary school graduation may be eligible for transfer credit. The student should submit an official transcript from the institution they attended.
