Computer and software requirements

All students in the Bachelor of Media Arts program are required to have reliable access to a computer with Adobe Creative Suite.

We recommend that you have your own MacBook Pro laptop; however, this is not a requirement for the program. Some courses and concentrations may have additional computer or software requirements. Students should consult with UFV SoCA Director Heather DavisFisch, for advice on program and concentration requirements.

Your course load will depend on the program you are enrolled in as well as your personal circumstances and goals.

  • To be considered a full-time undergraduate student, you typically need to enroll in 9 credits per semester.
  • A standard course load is 15 credits per semester for most programs. This would allow you to complete a full Bachelor's degree in four years, taking the summer semesters off.
  • Many students choose to take 9 - 12 credits per semester.
  • Some programs (for example Trades) have a set course load.

You're encouraged to discuss your course load with your Academic Advisor before you register for courses.

Learn more about UFV's course load policies in the Academic Calendar.

The ancillary fee provides support for activities, athletics, library and technical services, student software, and student spaces. It's set at 10% of tuition, and is charged per credit.

The Experiential Learning & Wellness fee provides support for students in the form of experiential and co-curricular learning opportunities, expansion of the Co-Curricular Record, health & well-being, and peer mentoring. It is set at 2% of the tuition.

UFV collects fees on behalf of the Student Union Society, the Cascade Journalism Society, and UFV Campus and Community Radio every semester. Learn more about student union & society fees.
