I'm also working towards a different Major/Minor/Certificate. May I use any of the BPK credits towards that program?
This depends on which combination of degrees you are completing. For the most up-to-date information on how courses can/cannot be used towards multiple programs, refer to the SFU Credential Definitions page.
Should I check with an advisor as I get close to graduation? If so, when should I see an advisor?
Yes, definitely. If you expect to be graduating in the next 2-3 semesters, it is strongly recommended that you meet with an advisor to review graduation requirements. Please bring your advising transcript when you come for this check. Students must remember that ultimately they are held responsible for knowing regulations and the requirements for their own program.
How do I apply to graduate?
You apply to graduate in the second week of the start of your last semester of courses at SFU to avoid missing any deadlines. Deadlines are posted here: http://students.sfu.ca/deadlines.html
You apply on the Student Information System.
For more information go to: http://www.sfu.ca/convocation/students/howtoapply.html
Remember that if you are completing a degree and a certificate, you need to apply separately for each of these credentials.
