SFU NOW (Nights or Weekends)
SFU NOW: Nights or Weekends is a program designed especially for mature students who wish to work towards their Bachelor of Arts degree part-time.
As a part-time SFU NOW student, you’ll earn the same Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree as a full-time SFU student.
Earn a degree—or just take a few university courses
You may complete a Bachelor of Arts degree entirely through SFU NOW, or take SFU NOW courses to supplement another SFU program, including a certificate or post-baccalaureate diploma. As an SFU NOW student, you may enroll in any SFU undergraduate course offered online, during the day, in the evenings or on weekends.
Enroll in as many or as few courses as you like—SFU NOW courses are regular university courses in a large range of humanities and social sciences subjects, including criminology, political science, sociology, English, humanities, international studies and more.
To be admitted to take SFU NOW's FASS courses, begin your application to be admitted to SFU via the normal processes.
The next application period is August 1, 2020 - September 15, 2020 to start taking courses in January 2021.
- If you are 23 or older, you may be given consideration as a mature student.
- Additionally, we are interested in those who meet our minimum admission standards and have demonstrated commitment or excellence in other endeavours — see our Diverse Qualifications admissions page to apply based on more than your grades.

Meet Rozy Karim
At one point during her studies in the International Studies program, Rozy Karim found herself in her student advisor’s office with tears in her eyes. Having begun her undergraduate education at the age of 59, she reflected on her past and wondered if she would be able to complete her studies.
To anyone who knew Karim’s story, the answer would be a resounding “Yes, you can!”
