Student union and society fees: Every semester, you will also pay student union and society fees, which include your BC transit pass and student health & dental plan. To learn more about how your fees will be set, visit the Student union and society fees page.

 

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.


Additional fees for course field trips and practicum courses will apply to all students enrolled in Environmental Studies courses, and students enrolled in courses within the degree, e.g. Geography.

My most valuable experience was certainly the AIG to BC's Interior that I had the pleasure of completing with my peers under the guidance of Gary Fehr and Olav Lian. This experience was in-depth, interesting and relevant to my previous studies in a wide range of subject areas, including postglacial and paraglacial processes, First Nations affairs in BC and BC's evolving economy. I sincerely enjoyed this learning experience and it was the perfect way to cap off my undergraduate studies at UFV.
