A new initiative for part-time undergraduate degree studies for adult learners is planned for 2008. The new program for working adults will offer an array of evening and weekend courses beginning in fall 2008, with pilot offerings in January.

But now is the time to ask questions, consider options and start the application process, says Yvonne Tabin, SFU's continuing studies program director responsible for the new credit program. Planning is solidly under way with a formal, university-wide planning committee established.

"There are many people who, for all kinds of reasons, are not able to attend classes during week days," Tabin notes. "Some would like to complete undergraduate degrees they started years ago; others are interested in university courses for personal or professional development. SFU has a great tradition of finding ways to make university education more accessible."

Tabin says the new program plans to streamline admission and registration. "Adult learners are looking for things to be made clear and easy, with full support provided along the way." For information call 604.291.5686.
