Apply to UFV


Apply early to get the best selection

Seats in many programs are limited and popular programs fill up quickly. Please note that some programs will close earlier than the posted application deadline. Review application deadlines to give yourself plenty of time.

Applicants who do not complete their application by the application deadline, or prior to a program's closure, or applicants who want to change their program or first semester of study after completing their application, will have to re-apply and pay the $150 non-refundable application fee.

Studied at UFV before and need to re-apply? 

Effective Winter 2017 all returning students who have not studied at UFV for more than one calendar year (or three semesters) will need to re-apply and pay the $150 non-refundable application fee.  When you reapply online, be sure to enter your UFV Student ID number.

Winter 2019 applications closed

Please note: UFV has reached capacity for all programs except the ELS (English Language Studies) program earlier than the posted deadline of Oct. 1 for the Winter 2019 semester. Visit the international application for more information.

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

  • 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.
  • India high school applicants who have not yet graduated need to upload a copy of their CBSE Admit card to have their Senior Secondary transcript verified online.

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.

When you have completed your online application, you will be prompted to pay a non-refundable fee of $150 CAD for an undergraduate program application and $250 for a post-baccalaureate or master's degree application. Find out how to pay.

Wait for your conditional admission letter

You will receive a conditional admission letter by email approximately two 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.  Please note the deadline in your letter for receipt of official documents and the tuition fee deposit.  This deadline cannot be extended.

NOTE: Fall 2018 high school applicants deadline for receipt of official documents and tuition fee deposit is May 15, 2018, and for post-secondary applicants it is April 20, 2018.



Pay your fees and submit official documents

Pay your tuition and fee deposit in full 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. Payment options will be provided with your conditional admission letter.  If your transcripts are not in English, you may be asked to provide a certified translation.  With timely receipt of your fee payment and all official documents, UFV is able to verify and finalize your admission and send you your official letter of acceptance. 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.
