Academic Advising

Student Responsibility

Each student is responsible for ensuring that his or her academic choices meet the requirements for graduation.  All requirements are outlined in the SFU Calendar, which is available online. Please note that the SFU Calendar is considered the authority for official information, therefore we recommend that students refer to the calendar for information pertaining to Program Requirements, including course prerequisites.
