Prepare your documents

Depending on the program to which you wish to apply, you may need to provide high school or university transcripts, prepare a portfolio, or take a placement test.

In addition to filling out an online application, some programs may also require that you fill additional forms, such as sealed reference forms, personal statements, or volunteer history.

Note: You are required to declare all previously attended post-secondary institutions, and provide official post-secondary transcripts, even if it is not required for your program admission requirements. Order your transcripts early so they can arrive before you apply. View official transcript guidelines.

Wait to hear you have been accepted

After you apply, we confirm we've received your application by sending you an email to your personal email address within one to two weeks of your submission.

This preliminary email contains information about checking your application status by logging into UFV's application portal. You will need your G ID and PIN that you created to access the UFV application portal when you applied. Keep your G ID secure and confidential so only you can access your application.

Once we receive all the documents required for your program, we will review your application to determine if you are admissible. You are considered for admission according to the criteria outlined in the UFV Academic Calendar under Basis for admission decision for your program. Some programs may also require you to attend an interview or orientation. If so, we will notify you.

Once we've assessed your application, we will contact you to tell you whether or not you have been accepted into your chosen program.

You will receive an official letter of acceptance if you are accepted into your program. 

Your acceptance to a program may be conditional upon final completion of all entrance requirements. You will be given a deadline to provide proof of completion (e.g. currently enrolled high school students will normally have a deadline of August 3 for Fall semester).

If you are conditionally accepted and must provide additional information, you will be notified. If you are not admissible for your program of choice, we generally offer admission to an alternate program (e.g. Qualifying Studies).
