Financial Planning Resources
UFV Financial Aid and Awards has compiled the following resources to assist current and prospective students in making well informed decisions on their financial affairs while pursuing their educational goals.
Budget Planning for your Education
If you are planning to attend a post-secondary institution it is important to have your finances in order before you begin your studies. To minimize your overall debt upon graduation, it is important to develop a personal budget to balance your income and spending over the coming months and years.
Important Information for Students Needing to Finance their Education
The student assistance programs are based on demonstrated individual financial need. This means you will be required to report your financial expenses and resources, and where the regulations require, the financial expenses and resources of your wife, husband, common-law partner, parents or guardian.
