Admission Requirements

Economics Admission Requirements

Program admission is limited. Entry is via a formal department application. Students may apply for admission to an economics program once 30 units have been completed, ECON 201 is completed with at least a C- grade, the minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is met and the ECON program GPA is met.

The economics department announces the minimum CGPA below which students will not normally be considered for admission to its programs.

Applications with appropriate documentation should be filed with the departmental advisor. Students who are not accepted upon initial application may reapply.

Continuation in Economics Program

To continue in an economics program, students must maintain a 2.0 CGPA.

Beedie School of Business Admission Requirements

Joint Major applicants should apply to Beedie through the internal transfer process, which is outlined here, after completing 30 units, including the eight lower division courses required for admission. Students must already be accepted to the Economics portion of the Joint Major or be eligible for admission that term.

Students not accepted upon initial application may reapply. Unsuccessful applicants are permitted to appeal.

Early Access to Upper Division Courses

Students normally cannot enter ECON upper division courses during the first 60 units, but for those who have the minimum Simon Fraser University grade point average required to access upper division ECON courses, the following exceptions are permitted.

Students who earn a grade of A- or better at Simon Fraser University on their first attempt in ECON 201 may enroll in ECON 302 and 305, and all courses for which they have satisfied the prerequisites, once 30 units is completed.

Students who earn an A- grade or better at Simon Fraser University on their first attempt in BUS 232 or STAT 270 may enroll for ECON 333 once they have completed 30 units. These upper division courses will count towards Department of Economics and Simon Fraser University upper division requirements. See ECON course descriptions for access information.
