Academic Upgrading Courses

Students may need to complete or upgrade high school courses to meet UFV entrance requirements or course prerequisites.  Students are encouraged to consult with advisors and take assessment tests to determine where they should start.

For all CIS programs, B.C. Principles of Math 11 (or equivalent) with a grade of C or better (including the provincial exam component) is an entrance requirement.  

Upgrading and University Preparation at UFV

The Upgrading and University Preparation (UUP) department at UFV provides high school upgrading opportunities. UUP provides 

  • MATH 084 Advanced Developmental Math I
  • MATH 085 Advanced Developmental Math II

These two courses are the equivalent to B.C. MATH 11.  Students may take either the Math Placement Test or the UUP assessment to gain entry into MATH 084 or MATH 085 (consult the UFV calendar for official details).
