An important notice about using these policies:

  2. Some of the academic policies listed below have been partially superseded by the 2014-2019 Collective Agreement between SFU and the Faculty Association.  Those policies are in the process of being considered for revision.

  3. Policies are cross-referenced to the appropriate article(s) in the Collective Agreement for ease of reference and a direct link to the Collective Agreement is provided here. Please use and rely only on the Collective Agreement article(s) as the official, authoritative source. 

  4. Academic policies that are not superseded by the Collective Agreement remain in force and are indicated by a policy title in bold text. 

  5. Gaps in the sequential numbering of the academic policies denote an academic policy that was repealed because it is obsolete.
