In 2008, SFU's Nights or Weekends (NOW) program was developed to allow students to complete their degrees by taking only evening and weekend classes.

In light of the pandemic changing many lives and career paths, FASS is exploring new ways to respond to our students' changing needs. FASS will no longer be admitting new students into SFU NOW.

FASS remains committed to serving the needs of all current SFU NOW students in our Faculty.

If you are a current SFU NOW student, please contact your departmental advisor to discuss the large range of asynchronous remote and online courses that you can take during the pandemic. Your contacts:


If you are a student in another Faculty, your contacts are:

Current Students

If you would like to apply to SFU as a regular student, the next application period is October 1, 2020 to January 31, 2021, to start taking SFU courses in September 2021.
