Required documents

After you've applied, submit your required documents so SFU can evaluate your application. Required documents will appear on your To Do List in your Student Centre. 

Due to high volumes, allow 4-6 weeks for our office to indicate that we have received and processed your documents in your Student Centre. Your application will not be cancelled if your document was submitted by the deadline.

Submit your documents

Items on your To Do List that have an upload button must be submitted in your Student Centre. All other documents must be submitted directly from an institution, or by mail.


To Do List Items other than those from select institutions listed in the "From Another Institution" section above or documents accepted through document upload, can be mailed to:

Undergraduate Admissions
Simon Fraser University
8888 University Drive
Burnaby BC Canada V5A 1S6

Documents requested by mail must be official. An Official Document:

  • Is issued directly from the educational institution in a sealed envelope
  • Bears the original institutional seal, stamp, or signature
  • Is in the original language of instruction


Irreplaceable documents (as determined by our Admissions office) that are provided to Undergraduate Admissions will be made available for pickup at Student Central (located in MBC 3200 on the Burnaby campus) after evaluation. SFU Admissions will retain irreplaceable documents for three terms following the term to which application is made. After this period, documents will be securely shredded. Contact us to arrange to pick up your documents within the three term timeframe.

If someone other than yourself will be picking up your documents, you must provide them with a letter of authorization for the release of your documents. The authorized person must provide photo identification at the time of pick up.

If you or an authorized representative can not pick up your irreplaceable documents, please contact us to arrange to have your documents returned via courier. SFU is not responsible for your documents once released to the courier.

All other documents become the property of the University and will not be copied or returned.

If you attend SFU, electronic copies of your documents will be kept on file for the duration of your studies.
