Tuition and Scholarship
Learn about tuition fees and scholarships
Undergraduate tuition fees
Your total tuition fees will depend on your program, the number of courses you take, whether you are a domestic or international student, and a range of special or supplementary fees that may or may not all apply to you.
Typical program costs
Wondering how much being a student will cost on top of your tuition fees? It’s important to be aware of all of the costs you’ll face so that you can create a financial plan. You will need to pay other expenses, including books and supplies, housing or campus residence costs, medical and dental plan costs, and all of your food, entertainment and other day-to-day expenses. SFU has a handy online calculator to help you budget.

Once you get here
If you are not awarded an entrance scholarship, you can apply for a scholarship while you are studying for your degree. The Undergraduate Open Scholarship is awarded to eligible domestic and international students on a term-by-term basis.
Awards recognize outstanding achievements of specific contributions to the community.
Bursaries are an additional source of funding for eligible students. You may qualify for a bursary if you can demonstrate a financial need.
