Academic Calendar Fall 2017

Aviation

The seats in these courses are normally reserved for students in an Aviation program.

Note: Effective Fall 2017, Aviation (AV) courses listed in this calendar are offered by third party educational providers which have course articulation agreements with UFV. Students entering the program in Fall 2017 will register only in the non-Aviation courses through the UFV online course registration system and directly through their third party provider for their Aviation (AV) courses. Students who began their program prior to Fall 2017 will register for all their courses through the UFV online course registration system.


English language proficiency requirements

Students registering in post-secondary level courses (numbered 100 to 499) will be required to meet the English language entrance proficiency requirements. Students in ELS or the University Foundations programs can register in those courses identified in the University Foundations program with lower levels of language proficiency.

Please note that not all courses are offered every semester.
