Non-semester-based programs

Most programs at UFV try to follow the semester dates. However, some may start earlier or end later. Students should check with their department to confirm.

Convocation

Convocation ceremonies are held in the first week of June. The date, time, and location of the ceremonies is available online at ufv.ca/convocation.

Students must apply to graduate by April 1. There is a $25 graduation fee, plus a regalia rental fee. Regalia should be ordered online prior to the ceremony; see ufv.ca/convocation for details or email convocation@ufv.ca.

Continuing Education

Classes start throughout the year. They are advertised in the Continuing Education program booklet, which is delivered to homes in the university region in late August for the Fall semester and early January for the Winter semester. Registration dates are given in the Continuing Education booklet.

A refund is allowed before, but not after, the beginning of the second class. After instruction begins, no refund is permitted for courses of fewer than two sessions.
