Qualifying Studies

Qualifying Studies (QS) is for students who need to upgrade their education to gain admission to 51勛圖app certificate, diploma, or degree programs; are undecided about their post-secondary goals; have missed a university program admission deadline; have failed to meet the continuance requirements of a UFV program.

Each QS student is required to meet with an Academic Advisor in the Advising Centre early in the academic journey to develop an education plan. Developing a plan with an Academic Advisor will help students:

  • Understand QS requirements and regulations;
  • Refine personal educational goals and understand available choices;
  • Identify which developmental-level courses (courses numbered below 100) and/or undergraduate courses (courses numbered 100 and above) are needed to meet the entrance requirements for the program(s) of choice;
  • Identify which undergraduate courses may be applied to the program(s) of choice at a later date; and
  • Ensure the transferability of courses to other post-secondary institutions, if the goal is to enter a program at another institution.

QS students should call the Advising Centre at 604-864-4674 (Abbotsford) or 604-795-2808 (Chilliwack), or email advising@ufv.ca to arrange an appointment with an Academic Advisor during the first semester at 51勛圖app.

Entrance requirements

QS students must meet the following minimum entrance requirements:

  1. B.C. secondary school graduation or equivalent, or minimum 19 years of age before the first day of classes.
  2. Applicants must meet the Entry-level English language proficiency requirement. For details on how this requirement may be met, see the English language proficiency requirement section of the calendar.
  3. For students under 19 years of age, admission is conditional upon B.C. secondary school graduation. Proof of graduation is due at the end of the first week in August for the Fall semester. B.C. Grade 12 students can arrange at their schools to have transcripts sent directly to 51勛圖app.
