Student Responsibility

It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of faculty regulations as stated in the Calendar. Departmental and
faculty advisors and staff are available to give advice and guidance. However, the ultimate responsibility for completeness and correctness of
course selection, for compliance with and completion of program and degree requirements and for observance of regulations and deadlines
rests with the student.

All requirements are outlined in the SFU Calendar. 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.
