When do I register for courses?
You can begin registering for courses on registration start date and time. You will have until the term's fee payment deadline to continue registering for courses. To find your registration start date, log in to my.ufv.ca.
How do I register for courses?
You can also register in person on or after your assigned time.
You can view additional registration information for international students on the UFV International website.
Close to registration time, the International office in B223 runs info sessions to help students with registration.
Why can't I register in more than 10 credits?
If you are restricted to a maximum of 10 credits when registering, you should see an advisor.
A 10-credit limit is put in place for students who have low GPA over several terms and have received an Academic Standing warning through their myUFV email account. Your academic advisor can help you build a plan to improve your standing.
What is a prerequisite?
If a course you want to register for lists a prerequisite you must have already successfully completed that course or have the prerequisite course currently in progress.
You can't register for a course if you have not taken the prerequisite course(s) or talked to the instructor and been granted a prerequisite waiver.
What if I’m taking the prerequisite course at another institution?
You need to contact the UFV instructor for a prerequisite waiver. You will only be able to to register after you secure your waiver.
How do I check that I have the prerequisites for a course?
Prerequisites for every course are listed in the timetable each term and in the Academic Calendar.
Prerequisite checking is automatic during the course registration process. The system will not permit you to register for a course if you have not taken, are not currently taking the prerequisite course at UFV, or do not have a prerequisite waiver on your file for the term, for its prerequisite course(s).
Why is there a FO (Fees outstanding) hold on my account?
If you attempt to register for courses without having your $200 deposit show as a credit on your account, a hold is automatically activated on your file. When you pay the deposit, the system looks for the amount on your file and will automatically end the hold the next time you enter the registration area.
If you attempt to register for courses before your full tuition and fees show as a credit on your account, a hold is automatically activated on your file.
When you pay your fees and tuition in full, the system will automatically end the hold the next time you enter the registration area.
What is the $200 deposit for and how do I pay it?
Every domestic student pays a $200 deposit prior to registering for courses for the upcoming semester. The $200 goes toward your tuition for the semester and should be paid 2-5 days before your assigned registration date in order to ensure it shows on your student account in time.
The quickest way is to pay the $200 using Interac online through myUfV. Other payment options include through your bank (please allow three business days for processing), and debit, cash, or cheque at any Office of the Registrar locations.
UFV accepts Interac Online from:
International students must pay all tuition and fees before registration. Be sure to initiate your payment early in order to ensure it shows on your student account before or on your assigned registration date.
What banks are accepted with Interac Online?
What happens if I'm on a waitlist for a course?
If a seat becomes available to you, you will receive an email to your UFV student email account. Check your emails daily and register before the expiry date given in the email.
If you do not receive an email before the semester starts, attend the first day of class to inquire about a seat.
What is a reserved seat?
Many courses have seats reserved for specific groups of students. If there are reserves they are listed on the timetable each term.
If you are not part of any of the reserve groups listed for the course, you may still register in any unreserved seats available. Students outside the identified reserved seats can also usually waitlist. Dates that reserved seats are removed can be found at reserved seats.
Can I register in one section and waitlist on another that I would prefer to have?
No. You cannot register and waitlist for the same class. If you do so, the system will remove you from the waitlisted section within 24 hours.
