Enroll in SFU NOW courses

Your enrollment appointment

Once you are admitted to SFU, you will receive an enrollment date and time by email. Enrollment dates and times are assigned over a three-week period. As an SFU NOW student, SFU NOW courses will be reserved for you for the first three weeks of the enrollment period, although you will still need to wait for your university-assigned enrollment date before you can enroll. At the end of this three-week period, SFU NOW courses will open to all SFU students.

You can see your assigned enrollment date and time when you access the Student Information System (SIS) to enroll in classes.

How to enroll in classes: Step by step

1. Consult the current schedule of classes to confirm dates and times.

In addition to night and weekend courses, SFU NOW students may enroll in any other SFU course—for example, online or distance education courses. There is a How to search/browse video available. 

2. Start the enrollment process.

Log in to the Student Information System (SIS) with your computing ID and password.

3. Check your enrollment appointment time.

Your enrollment appointment time will appear in the Enrollment Dates box on the right side of the screen, or under Enrollment in the self-service menu on the left side of the screen. There is a help video on How to check your enrollment date available. 

4. Enroll in classes on or after your enrollment appointment date.

To add a class using SIS, click on Academics in your Student Center or Enrollment in the self-service menu on the left side of the screen.

You may add or delete classes until the end of the first week of classes. After you’ve added or deleted classes, always check My Class Schedule to confirm the changes you’ve made. Also note that you can be moved from the waitlist into a course up until the second week of class without notice, so please be sure to check your SIS schedule regularly.

You may drop classes after enrolling in them, but you should be aware of the potential academic and/or financial penalties. See SFU’s deadlines for information about penalties.

Before making selections in the enrollment system, you may wish to watch SFU’s helpful video tutorials on the Student Tutorials page. Look for Add Classes, Drop Classes and Swap Classes.
