Program Requirements

This cohort program, offered at the Surrey campus, provides a solid foundation for those interested in a science major program offered by any faculty. The program provides a viable avenue to complete the prerequisites for various professional programs such as medicine, optometry, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, and dental hygiene. The admission requirements are the same as those of the Faculty of Science. However, students who were admitted to other Simon Fraser University faculties may also enrol, should space allow, but may be required to complete additional courses to augment a deficiency.

This is a full-time two term program beginning in the fall term.

The program is organized by Faculty of Science disciplines. A list of courses offered by the program is published in the fall for future fall and spring terms. For planning, see www.surrey.sfu.ca/science.

Students are free to complete other Simon Fraser University courses (offered at any campus or by distance education) provided that those courses do not conflict with the Science Year One Program.

Students complete both full-time Science Year One Program terms before they are eligible to transfer to any other Simon Fraser University program.

The program advisor may approve a modification of the program requirements when appropriate. For example, a student who enters with advance credit for MATH 151 may substitute an elective course offered at Simon Fraser University Surrey. Consult the program advisor for advice.

Students without a declared major are encouraged to discuss their academic goals with the program advisor during their first term.

Students will complete biological sciences and chemistry laboratory sessions at the Burnaby campus.
