The University of the Fraser Valley Presents:

You are the most important thing to us. At UFV, our focus is on the success of our students while in university and beyond. Our smaller class sizes allow individual attention, creative learning, and oneon-one time with your instructors. Whether you need academic advice, counselling, career services, or even help with an assignment, there is somebody here to offer you personalized advice and support. UFV is large enough to offer a great selection of programs, but small enough to care about you.

 Orientation programs At student orientation, you will get to know the UFV community, our campuses, and our services. There are also orientation sessions for parents. Because of advanced care and feeding, parentsí brains are usually larger and often need more detailed input.

  Computer labs and Wi-Fi UFV provides hundreds of computers for on-campus student use. Free wireless Internet service is available on campus for students with laptops.

 Library Get your brain in gear! In addition to free tours, orientations, and study research skills classes, the UFV Library offers one-on-one reference clinics on the Abbotsford campus. Book a halfhour appointment time with one of our reference librarians and they will assist you with your research.

 Media Resources Cameras, video cameras, projectors, microphones, audio recorders, a graphics computer lab, scanners, and video editing equipment are just some of the free media resources available to you as a UFV student.

  Writing Centre Do you suffer from brain cramps or writerís block? Get help with researching, developing ideas, organizing materials, drafting, and revising. The centre can also assist with a range of writing tasks including essays and oral presentations.

 Math Centre Are the equations just not adding up? The Math Centre can help get your brainís synapses firing.

 Supported Learning Groups These are peer learning groups that are associated with some of our more difficult courses. When you need to get calculus under your belt, this group is there to help coach your brain along.

 Counselling and advising services Sometimes you need help to wrap your brain around all of the decisions you need to make in life. These services are available free to students for study skills advice, career and life planning decisions, educational planning, personal or relationship problems, and crisis situations.

 Disability Services UFV provides services and equipment to help smooth the path for students with disabilities as they pursue their goals at UFV.

Tuition and Fees Consider your education an investment in the health and potential of your brain. A typical undergraduate Arts or Sciences student taking a full course load at UFV can expect to pay about Cdn $4,170 in tuition fees over two semesters. International student fees are available online at ufv.ca/international. Be sure to check in with Financial Aid & Awards at ufv.ca/fineaid to explore scholarships, bursaries, and student loans.

Financing your education Visit UFV’s ‘Surfing for dollars!’ site at ufv.ca/fineaid/surf for information on scholarships and awards to help pay for your education.

A little light on cash? Investigate our work-study programs and co-operative education placements, where you gain paid work experience as you earn your credential. Check out ufv.ca/jobs.

Higher education, lower cost In a recent local survey, high school students overestimated the cost of tuition for one year by almost $5,000, guessing, on average, that tuition would be around $8,500. In fact, average tuition at UFV is only $4,170 (for two semesters of five courses each).

Take it one step at a time Some programs allow you to ‘ladder’ into another program, giving you the opportunity to build on previously earned credentials. For example, the two years of credits earned in a diploma or associate degree could be used as credit toward a four-year degree in the same area. Please refer to the current calendar for additional details: ufv.ca/calendar/programs. TIP: Study close to home and save! Living at home while studying at UFV can cut the cost of your post-secondary education by almost 50%. Your brain will thank your wallet later.
