If you do not log in to your course by noon the third day of classes, your instructor may assume you are not planning to attend and you may be withdrawn.
The course closes (becomes unavailable) at midnight on the last day of the last month of classes.
Where is my course?
You can access your course:
1. Through myUFV
To log in to your course, go to www.ufv.ca and log into MyUFV. Click on the tab "My Courses". Please follow the instructions to access your fully online course. Remember, to increase your chances of success in your online courses, plan to log in to your course a minimum of three times per week.
Some instructors may schedule midterms and final exams that require you to attend on campus. Specific details will be provided by your instructor at the beginning of the course. Distance students are expected to arrange a qualified proctor at an accredited post-secondary institution to write the final exam at the time noted in the final exam schedule (exceptions can be made for problems caused by different time zones).
Wait-listed For An Online Course?
If you are wait-listed for an online course, contact the instructor on or before the first day of classes for that semester, using your UFV student email account to inquire if there will be a seat for you or not in that section.

Online learning is a means to provide alternate access to those in our traditional geographic region and beyond who have work, family or lifestyle commitments that have been barriers to their learning.
Instructors and students who have participated in online courses have offered the following advantages to online learning:
- Freedom to travel, work or cover other commitments and yet maintain a classroom presence
- Flexible time schedules
- Ability to discuss topics with fellow students beyond classroom time
- Useful for group projects, collaboration, peer learning, and extensive discussion
We have learned that online learning is a powerful tool for participation and our course design reflects this. If you enrol in an online course prepare to get involved...this is NOT correspondence.
