Please note that the Online Application System is only available while applications are being accepted for each program.
a) Complete the Online Application for Graduate Studies at SFU. You do not have to wait until you have all your supporting documents ready before applying. We recommend that you begin your application early so we are aware of your interest; then you can work on completing and collecting the rest of your package until the posted deadline.
b) Enter contact information, including e-mail addresses, for two references. Once you submit your referee contact information, your referees will be sent a secure e-mail link and password enabling them to log into the Online Application System where they will have the option to submit their reference by PDF upload or by simply copying and pasting text.
c) Pay the application fee when prompted. An application fee of $90 CAD (students with Canadian transcripts) or $125 CAD (students with international transcripts) is due after the Online Application form has been submitted.
If you do not receive an e-mail requesting payment of this fee within 3 working days after submitting your application, please contact the Advanced Professional Studies office to check the status of your application.
(Please Note: If there are insufficient applicants and the program is cancelled, this fee will be refunded.)
