FIC/SFU: Faculty of Applied Sciences Course Planning Sessions

Each semester, the Faculty of Applied Sciences offers FAS Information Sessions to support current FIC students' transition to SFU. We encourage you to join our sessions to learn your degree requirements and hear the first-hand experiences from our FIC-FAS student ambassadors about co-op, virtual learning and student clubs, unions and societies.

  • Date: December 1, 2021 
  • Time: 4:30 am - 5:30 am (Vancouver Time)
  • Click RSVP for this workshop
  • If you missed the course planning workshops, you may RSVP to meet a FAS advisor via zoom for one-on-one course planning advising

IMPORTANT DATES

https://www.sfu.ca/students/deadlines/html

  • November 8: Enrolment Begins. Most of the CMPT, ENSC, MSE and SEE courses are reserved for applied sciences students. 
  • November 29: open enrolment begins at 8:00 am (PST)

CONDITIONAL OFFER VS LATE OFFER

Conditional Offer: If you have received a conditional offer, this means that your current CGPA has met SFU's minimum transfer requirements. Your final grades will still matter as FIC students must adhere to the conditions of their pathway requirements. 

Late Offer: If you have applied to SFU and currently waiting for an offer as your current CGPA did not achieve the minimum transfer requirements, please be prepared that your enrolment date will be assigned to you late. This means the enrolment option will be limited and you may consider either adding yourself to the waitlist or enrolling in electives.
