We are looking forward to welcoming the student in your life to UFV, and want to reassure you that we are committed to supporting our students as they prepare for their UFV journey.
Parents and supporters (guardians, friends, family members, partners, or spouses) can play an important part in students' educational journey and their success. Take a look at our suggestions below for ways you can support the UFV student in your life.
Encourage new students to participate in online orientation events
Starting with Discover Your UFV in June, UFV offers a series of events and activities to help new students start their post-secondary journey off strong. Students will learn important information about how to succeed at university, and will have opportunities to connect with current students, faculty, and staff.
Attend an online information session for parents & supporters
Attend the online info session for supporters through our Discover Your UFV event. In this session, you'll learn what to expect as students embark upon their first semester at UFV, the various support services available to them, and how you can best support a student attending UFV. These sessions are delivered by UFV staff in real-time, allowing you to follow along and ask questions.
Capacity for each session is limited, so reserve a spot now.

Encourage your student to take an active role in their post-secondary education
Under BC's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privavy Act (FIPPA), UFV is not permitted to disclose any student information to parents, guardians, family members, etc. without the student’s consent. If you contact UFV on a student’s behalf, we will only be able to answer very general questions about processes or services. For specific questions or concerns, students are required to contact the relevant UFV department themselves.
