How To Apply
Please note, you must submit an application for approval into the Certificate or the Post Baccalaureate Diploma AND you must apply for admission to Simon Fraser University (if you are not already an SFU student): these are completely separate applications.
For information on how to apply to SFU, and for the university application deadlines go to: http://students.sfu.ca/admission.html
Our application for approval to the SCD program is subordinate to your application to the university for admission, and conditional upon an applicant receiving admission to SFU (if you are not already an SFU student).
The SCD Program application form is available from the Centre or online (click here to download).
Application deadlines the Centre are (although they are subject to change):
Fall (September): April 30
Spring (January): September 30
Summer (May): January 31
Both Programs require a minimum 2.5 GPA.
Undergraduate Certificate: Students must normally complete 30 units before applying for this program.
Post Baccalaureate Diploma: This program is for those with an undergraduate degree or equivalent.
Western Deans Agreement (WDA)
Graduate students, including those from other universities, are welcome to take SCD undergraduate courses, providing there is room left after the undergraduate students register. However, this requires advance planning on the part of the grad student because undergraduate courses are not organized in the same fashion as graduate ones.
Please see the memo to Grad Students about the WDA process and deadlines.
