SFU will remove one grade 12 course from the evaluation if you present six or more approved courses as follows:

  • If you present six or more approved List A courses, SFU will remove the lowest, non-required List A course
  • If you present five or fewer List A courses, your lowest List B course will be removed.

All approved grade 11 and 12 courses will be used in the admission evaluation.

A greater emphasis is placed on List A courses in the evaluation as they are indicators of success for that particular program.

All online courses must be complete by June 30, 2023 to be used in the admission evaluation.

We require an interim grade in late April and final grade in July to confirm your admission. This must be sent to SFU directly from your online course provider, your home school, or reflected on your Ministry of Education transcript.

Students who have previously completed Grade 12 (any semester)

If you have already completed your grade 12 year and are upgrading or taking additional high school courses, then an official, final transcript must be submitted to the Undergraduate Admissions office by the document deadline. All courses must be complete and on your Ministry of Education transcript by this deadline.

Challenge exams

Challenge exams will appear on your transcript as the course you are challenging, with the grade you receive on the exam.

We require courses for admission to appear on your interim and final transcript by April/May and July, respectively.

When self-reporting your grades, please enter the course you will be challenging with a mark in an equivalent course so we can use it in the evaluation process. For example, if you are challenging French 12 and do not have a grade yet, please self-report French 12 with the grade you received in French 11.

Course Exception

If you are unable to fulfill an admission requirement due to extenuating circumstances, please complete the Student Course Exception Form

Students must still present a minimum of 5 approved grade 12 academic courses and meet the university English Language and Quantitative requirements.
