Contact an Advisor

We want you to have a successful educational experience at SFU and we hope to assist you by providing a range of advisors and on-line tools. SFU's advisors will help you plan your courses, explore academic interests and guide you through course and program requirements. To make the most of your time with an advisor, please familiarize yourself with the options you are considering and prepare your questions before your appointment. Program requirements and course information can be found on departmental websites and/or the SFU Calendar.

SFU Academic Advisors

SFU Academic Advisors are the main point of contact for students who have not declared a Major. They can help you with first-year program planning, general academic issues, health issues, general advice and programs to ensure your success in university and beyond.
