Important Spring 2022 course update:

The 9 CMNS unit prerequisite listed on the SFU Calendar for CMNS 200 division courses will NOT be implemented for the upcoming Spring 2022 term. An exception has already been put into goSFU and you will be able to enroll into most of the CMNS 200 division upon the completion of CMNS 110 and CMNS 130, without contacting an advisor. If you are still unable to do so, please reach out to Zed (cmns1@sfu.ca). CMNS 120W will not be offered this Spring 2022 term as well.

CMNS 201W and CMNS 202 will continue to require the previously listed prerequisite of minimum 24 units completed prior to enrolling.

Booking an Appointment: Spring 2022

The School of Communication has decided to continue remote advising for the Spring 2022 term. In-person advising is available upon request.

Please note: in-person advising appointments will require extra-time to schedule and could result in a delayed advising appointment.

Email advising
Monday - Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Please note: Do not email multiple advisors with the same message as this will delay the response time to other students.
