Since 2008, SFU's Nights or Weekends (NOW) program has helped adult students to complete their bachelor's degrees.
In light of the pandemic changing many lives and career paths, we’re re-imagining SFU NOW and exploring new ways to respond to our students' changing needs.
If you would like to be admitted to SFU, the next application period is October 1, 2020–January 31, 2021, to start taking SFU courses in September 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.
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:
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!”
