Please note the following important updates
- UFV will be closed for the holiday season (no one will be available on campus) from Dec. 24 at Noon (PT) to January 3, 2021. We will re-open for normal hours of operation on January 4, 2021.
- Students who do not have their study permits by the start of the Winter 2021 semester (January 6) will need to defer their admission to a future semester.
Please review Deferring an Offer of Admission and submit the required Request for Deferred Admission form by the first week of classes (Jan. 6 to 8).
Once UFV receives the completed request form, the Admissions team will review, process and provide the updated LOA for the deferred semester.
- If the student has deferred their admission by the first week of the Winter 2021 semester and then receives a visa rejection they can confirm if they wish to continue with the deferred (future) semester, or if they are intending to complete a refund request.
Please review International Tuition Refund Rules to assist with the decision of re-applying for a visa for the deferred (future) semester, or requesting a refund.
- All new Winter 2021 students have been sent important information by e-mail for the start of the Winter 2021 semester, including our new online orientation CLIMB. Please encourage students to read their e-mails carefully to prepare for their online classes, or for their entry to Canada.
