Early fall 2009 enrolment in new faculties is exceeding expectations.

"We’ve had over 7,000 applications for Fall 2009 already," says Mehran Kiai, director of enrolment services. "Around 500 of those are for the new Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT) while another 100 are for the new environment faculty."

FCAT is an amalgamation of the School for the Contemporary Arts, the School of Communication, the Master of Publishing program and the School or Interactive Arts and Technology. The new environment faculty brings together the School of Resource and Environmental Management, the department of geography, the Centre for Sustainable Community development, the Environmental Science program and the Graduate Certificate Program in Development Studies.

Kaia says the university’s new streamlined enrolment system has dramatically improved acceptance times. "High school students who self report their grades early and meet entrance qualifications will be receiving offers within a few days of applying."

He recommends that prospective students get their applications in before the early admission deadline of Feb. 28. The deadline for major scholarships is also Feb. 28. Confirmed admission and scholarship offers will be sent out in March.

The original, print version of this story mistakenly included the Liberal Arts program instead of the Master of Publishing program as part of SFU's new
Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT).
