Register for courses

Registration Step by Step

Follow the six steps below to sign up for courses.

If you were enrolled at UFV in the past but have been absent more than one year, or have missed one or more semesters in a program that requires continuous enrolment, you must apply for re-admission to a UFV program before you can register.

1

Pay your deposit

Pay your $200 deposit prior to registration time:

  • Pay in person at the Office of the Registrar (Admissions), at any campus.
  • Pay online through your bank, at least seventy-two hours prior to your registration date, as shown in myUFV. Use your student ID as the payee account number.

Find your registration time

Log in myUFV to find your registration time:

  • Select 'Student information'
  • Select 'Registration'
  • Select 'Check your registration time and availability'
  • Select the term from the drop down menu and click 'SUBMIT'
  • The time at which you can register will appear, for example: June 23 (2 PM) – Dec 5. You may register anytime during this period. For best course selection, register as early as you can.

Registration times are scheduled in early May for the Fall semester, in early November for the Winter semester, and in early March for the Summer semester. Registration times are scheduled on week days between 9 am and 3:45 pm only. No evening, weekend or statutory holidays have times assigned.

Find out which courses you need to take

Review your program's guidelines on the UFV Calendar to make sure you know which courses you need to take.

If you are not sure which courses you need to take to meet your program's requirements, book an appointment with an advisor.

Note that any prerequisites for courses you wish to take must be met at the time of registration. If you do not meet the prerequisite(s) for a course, you may request permission from the instructor.

Build your schedule

Use a timetable worksheet to build your schedule. You can use the timetables or Interactive Course Finder to help build your timetable. Be sure to check for time conficts and allow enough time to travel between campuses, if required. You may wish to include your other commitments (work, extra-curriculars) in your worksheet, so you do not overcommit yourself.

Remember that classes that have labs associated with them are like an additional class: each has their own time, location, and CRN. Don’t forget to add them to your timetable, as both CRNs must be entered to register. Failure to enter the lab CRN will result in a link error message.

Watch the tutorial video.

Be sure you have met the prerequisites for all your courses. If you plan to seek instructor’s permission to waive prerequisites, do so before you register. Obtaining a waiver does not register you in a course.

Register for courses

Register online. Log in myUFV

Check your Account Summary by Term folder in myUFV to ensure your $200 registration deposit is showing on your account before you start to register. If you attempt to register before your deposit is processed, a hold will be placed on your account. When your deposit is processed, the hold will be lifted and you will regain access to register.

  • Select 'Student information'
  • Select 'Register, Add, Drop, Waitlist or Withdraw from a class'
  • Select the term from the drop down menu and 'SUBMIT'
  • Scroll to the bottom and add all of your CRNs in the blanks provided.
  • Select 'Submit changes'. Immediately, you will see the classes in which you are registered.         

If a section (class) is full, you can choose to waitlist from the drop down menu. Select 'Submit changes' again. Now you will be able to see where you are on the waitlist.

Keep checking your student email for notifications. If you are on a waitlist and a place opens for you, claim it as soon as possible.  

If you are still waitlisted when classes start, attend the first class and ask the instructor if there will be room for you in the class. If you do not show up on the first day of class, you forfeit your seat.

Watch the tutorial video.

Attend the first day of classes

Check your student schedule in myUFV just before classes begin to confirm room numbers.

You must attend the first meeting of the class for the semester, or notify the instructor in advance if you are unable to attend. If you do not, the instructor may withdraw you from the class.

The instructor is entitled (but not obligated) to withdraw you if you miss the first class. If you are withdrawn for non-attendance at the first class, you will be charged 10% of the tuition fees as a penalty. Please note that it is your responsibility to withdraw yourself from a course if you decide not to take it, not the instructor’s. If you do not attend the class and do not withdraw yourself completely, you will remain responsible to pay full fees for it and will be given a fail (F) grade.
