Complete the goSFU Access Form  and submit it to gosfuhelp@sfu.ca. Please allow up to three business days for processing.

FAQs for Supervisors

  How do I extend my employee's access?

The access that has been assigned to your employee will be disabled as per the end date originally specified on the goSFU access form. An email reminder will be sent to you approximately one week prior to this end date.

To request for an extension of access, contact gosfuhelp@sfu.ca with the employee's new end date. Please be advised the new end date must be reflected in their employment records in order for access to be extended.

  How do I update or remove my employee's access?

If your employee has become continuing or requires a change in access, submit a new goSFU access form to authorize and update their access.

If your employee no longer requires access, contact gosfuhelp@sfu.ca to have the access associated with their previous position removed.
