As a returning international student to UFV, your cost will depend on your program and any additional costs like lab fees, course materials, field trips, and other extras.

Costs are listed in Canadian dollars and are subject to change without notice. 

You must pay your tuition and fees at least five days before your registration time.  You will not be able to register unless your fees have been paid.


You are expected to attend courses full-time during the fall and winter semesters. Full-time attendance is based on a minimum of 12 credits. Most courses are worth three credits, so 12 credits usually equals four courses.

If you are taking courses in the summer, there is no course load requirement. You can study part-time and your tuition will be calculated per credit.

  • Summer 2024 tuition: $682 per credit
  • Fall or winter tuition: $8,424 (12 credits) plus $702 for every additional credit

Adding and dropping courses

As an international student attending full-time, you should enroll in at least 12 credits worth of courses. If you add a course, you will pay the current per-credit cost for every credit over 12.

If you drop or withdraw from courses, you should know the withdrawal dates because you may be subject to academic and financial penalties.

You may be eligible for a refund if you withdraw from a course. The amount depends on the program and circumstances and is based on the total tuition fees for each course.
