Academic Programs


The SFU Calendar (see http://students.sfu.ca/calendar) is the official governing document containing regulations regarding your academic career at SFU. The calendar that is in effect when you take your first course at SFU governs your degree requirements. The calendar that is in effect when you declare a psychology plan governs the plan requirements. It is advisable that you obtain and keep a copy of the relevant calendars.

Each student is responsible for ensuring that his or her academic choices meet the requirements for graduation. All requirements are outlined in the SFU Calendar. Advisors are available to provide guidance. However, the student has ultimate responsibility for compliance with and completion of the program and degree requirements and for observing regulations and deadlines.
