Admission Requirements

Admission Requirements - Beedie School of Business

Joint major applicants should apply to Beedie through the internal transfer process, which is outlined here, after completing 30 units, including the eight lower division courses required for admission, and must either already be accepted to the psychology portion of the joint major or be eligible for admission that term. Students not accepted upon initial application may reapply. Unsuccessful candidates are permitted to appeal.

Course Selection

Students should complete PSYC 100, 102 and 201 as soon as possible to gain better access to upper division PSYC courses. Students who plan a joint major in psychology should also complete PSYC 210.

The psychology department strongly recommends that students do not leave any of these required courses to the end of their degree. If a student is unable to obtain the required grade in PSYC 201, he or she will not be able to graduate with a joint major in psychology.

To enroll in psychology courses, students are required to meet the prerequisites or special instructions that may be stipulated for each. The listed prerequisites indicate the minimal background expected by instructors.

The psychology department reserves one hundred percent of all 300 and 400 division PSYC courses for approved psychology major, joint major, minor or honours students. Those who are not approved cannot enroll in these upper division courses until the open enrollment date.

In addition to normal university grade point average requirements, the Beedie School of Business requires a minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average for entry into all 300 and 400 division business courses.

A minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average is required for graduation from a business major, joint major, or double degree program.

Regarding business requirements, for a course to be accepted as fulfilling a prerequisite, or for a lower division requirement, or for a core course to be accepted in a student’s program in business, a student must have obtained a minimum grade of C- (C minus).

Letters of Permission

The Beedie School of Business and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences do not normally approve letters of permission for students already enrolled at Simon Fraser University.
