Returning SFU students either apply for reactivation or readmission. Students new to SFU apply for undergraduate admission. There are deadlines associated with applying for admission or readmission. Students are normally given five years to complete a PBD at SFU, as it may not be possible to complete a PBD in two or three semesters because not all courses are offered every semester.
