When to Apply
The Library and Information Technology Program at UFV now offers admission to all three semesters (Fall, Winter, Summer). This means that you can apply to the program at any time. Depending on demand, some foundation courses like LIBT 100 and LIBT 115 will are available twice per year. Other LIBIT courses are generally available once per year unless demand necessitates a second offering. However, there are many academic and elective courses that you can take while waiting for an available foundation course. So, apply today!
How to Apply
To apply online, visit the UFV homepage at www.ufv.ca and click on the "Apply Now" note in the upper right of the screen. Students will be sent a "conditional acceptance" when they have met the conditions for being accepted into UFV. Your application will be reviewed by the LIBIT Department and, if accepted, you will be sent a letter of acceptance. NOTE: All correspondence will be sent to your UFV Student Email account and you should correspond with the University from that account, not your home email. Complete applications include official transcripts (high school and post secondary) sent directly from the issuing institution to the UFV Admissions department.
NOTE: Whether you are interested in taking the LIBIT program on campus or online or a combination of the two, our admissions process has been streamlined and you can now just apply to the Library and Information Technology Diploma program!
NOTE: The Library and Information Technology (LIBIT) Diploma program is the 2 year (longer if part time) program leading to a diploma in Library and Information Technology. The LIBIT Studies program is for people who are not sure if they are suited for the program and wish to try out a few open LIBT courses or for those that do not meet the LIBIT program requirements and are working towards being accepted into the program. LIBIT studies students may take LIBT open courses, but are restricted from taking LIBIT closed program courses. The Library Technician Post-Diploma Certificate program is geared towards graduate Library Technicians working in the field.
