Have an offer of admission to an upcoming term?

If you have already received an offer of admission, you can no longer change your program prior to starting your studies at SFU. We encourage you to speak with an SFU Academic Advisor in your first term for guidance on how to pursue an internal transfer of admission to another faculty or program.
