Apply to UFV


Apply early to get the best selection

Seats in many programs are limited and popular programs fill up quickly. Review application deadlines to give yourself plenty of time. Applications that remain incomplete by the deadline may have to be deferred to the next semester.


Complete your application

UFV International's online application gives you the ability to save your information so that you can submit your documents and complete your application at your own convenience.

To complete the application, you need to provide the following information:

  • Personal information: Have your passport on hand and enter your name and birthdate exactly as it appears.
  • Agency information: If an agent in your country is helping you apply, enter their contact information.
  • Emergency contact: Provide the name of a parent, relative or friend who can be reached in case of emergency.
  • Desired program: Indicate which program you plan to take at UFV.
  • Language information: Enter your English language score.
  • Education information: List your high school and all colleges or universities you have attended.

Upload all necessary documents

Upload the following with your application:

  • Official high school transcripts. If your transcripts are in a language other than English, you also need to provide a certified English translation.
  • UFV also needs to receive official post-secondary transcripts from all the colleges or universities you have attended to admit you to your program of choice. Some credits may qualify for transfer. Learn how to transfer your credits to a Canadian university.
  • A copy of your passport.
  • Your English proficiency test results (TOEFL, IELTS, LPI). To get your TOEFL iBT score sent automatically to UFV use code 9736 when you take the test.

If you do not have all your documents available when you apply online, you can send them to us later. Or you can save your application and come back to it later to attach your documents. 


Pay your application fee

When you have completed your online application, you will be prompted to pay a non-refundable fee of $150 CAD using a credit card (how to pay).


Check your email

You will receive an email from UFV Admissions, which contains your UFV student number and instructions about accessing UFV student portal, called myUFV. Updates regarding your application will be available on myUFV and sent to your email.

Wait for your conditional admission letter

You will receive a conditional admission letter by email approximately two to three weeks after we have received your completed application and all required documents. This letter outlines the steps you need to take to receive your official letter of acceptance to UFV.


Pay your fees

Pay your tuition fee deposit and provide your official high school transcript(s), and/or official post-secondary transcript(s), and official proof of English language proficiency, as detailed in your conditional admission letter to receive your official letter of acceptance and secure your seat at UFV. You can pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express), bank draft, money order or bank transfer. View more information about tuition and fees.


Apply for your study permit

Include your official letter of acceptance in your application for a Canadian Study Permit. Check the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website for locations. Be sure to review and fulfill the study permit requirements.

Allow at least 4 to 13 weeks for processing. Processing may be faster for Indian and Chinese students who apply and meet the requirements under the Student Partners Program.
