All undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in the SFSS Health and Dental Plan and the plan fee is automatically included in your tuition fees. If you are third-party sponsored and your funding organization will not pay for SFU's Health and Dental plan, or you are covered under another plan (e.g. Health Canada’s First Nations & Inuit Health benefits) and you do not want to pay for SFU’s plan, you must opt out before September 18th. If you do not opt out before the deadline, you will owe the plan fee as charged.

Please note: If you are sponsored, please check with your funding organization to confirm if they will pay for your extended Health and Dental plan offered through SFU.

September 29 - Orange Shirt Day / Terry Fox Run 

September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters. We will be raising awareness in recognition of the survivors and the continued impacts of residential schools by wearing our orange shirts to SFU's Terry Fox Run.
