Extension Credit Program

Students seeking degree credit on a part time basis by either day or evening study are governed by the same regulations, have the same privileges, and follow the same admission and registration procedures as full time students. Relevant sections of this Calendar should be consulted concerning policies and procedures for admission, registration, academic programs available, program requirements, and current fees. Specific details regarding individual credit programs are available from faculties and departments.

Students pursuing certificates, diplomas, or minors who wish to study in the evenings or at Harbour Centre should consult with academic advisors at the Academic Resource Office (Burnaby campus) or Information and Registration Services (Harbour Centre campus), or with the certificate or diploma program advisor regarding the availability of courses in upcoming semesters. Proposed course scheduling is available for many programs on request.

Special Audit Student

The category of special audit student enables members of the community to access University credit courses as auditors. People interested in taking regular courses but who do not meet the general admission requirements or do not desire admission to the University may apply as special audit students. Such students attend courses but do not write final examinations or receive degree credit, record of attendance, or statement of standing.

Continuing Studies distributes a form which must be signed by the course instructor. Special audit fees (payable at the Cashier's Office) are calculated at one half the normal course fee. Special audit students may not change registration status after the semester has commenced.

Distance Education

Courses leading toward a certificate, diploma or degree program are available by distance education. Students may complete programs in part and, in some cases, entirely by distance education. The following programs are available completely or in part: certificate programs in applied human nutrition, community and economic development, criminology, computing studies, ethnic and intercultural relations, health and fitness studies, liberal arts; post baccalaureate diplomas in community economic development, early childhood education, education, criminology, gerontology, social policy issues, teaching English as a second language; major and/or minor degree programs in Canadian studies, criminology, education, English, kinesiology, psychology, sociology and anthropology. In addition, courses in archaeology, biological sciences, first nations, French, German, history, humanities, Japanese, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, political science, statistics, and women's studies are currently available.

Students registering in distance education courses are governed by the same regulations and follow the same admission and registration procedures as students taking other university credit courses. Simon Fraser University students can register in day, evening or distance education courses, or a combination thereof. In most cases, students are able to transfer some course credit from other post-secondary institutions to an SFU program listed in this Calendar, subject to specific program transfer credit regulations.

A booklet of courses and programs that are available by distance education, including admission and program requirements, is published each year. For more information or to receive a copy of this booklet telephone 778.782 3524; 1800-663-1411 (toll free in BC); e-mail cde@sfu.ca; or visit www.sfu.ca/cde
