Admission & Transferring

Where are you coming from?

Please follow the directions at the link that is applicable to you.

Admission to all BPK majors and minors is competitive

The number of qualified applicants exceeds the number that the Department of Biomedical Physiology & Kinesiology can accommodate.  For this reason, the Department of Biomedical Physiology & Kinesiology is strict about upholding the University limits on course repeats. Students not meeting the competitive admission/approval GPA can consult with the BPK Advisor regarding suitable program alternatives. 

There Are Limits On The Number Of Course Repeats

A student can only repeat a particular course once at SFU. 
The total number of courses which a student can repeat is limited to 5.
In the Department of Biomedical Physiology & Kinesiology there can be no third attempt to take any class.

Extenuating Circumstances

If a student received a poor or incomplete grade due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. illness), the student can follow the Withdrawals procedures outlined here. If permitted to 'withdraw' from a class, even after receiving a grade, then that class will not count against the two permitted attempts.
