Enrollment Requirements for International Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) regulations require all international students (study permit holders) to actively pursue studies while in Canada when enrolled at SFU. The immigration regulations also allow full-time international students enrolled at SFU in certain eligible programs to work on campus, part time off campus and full time during scheduled school breaks without a work permit.

It is the student's responsibility to maintain valid status in Canada and to continue to meet all conditions of the study permit. Visit IRCC's website for more information.

As a designated learning institution, Simon Fraser University is required to report on the enrollment status of international students twice a year. For enrollment definitions for immigration purposes, These definitions will determine how an international student's status will be represented in the reports.

Simon Fraser University's Designated Learning Institution (DLI) number is O18781994282.
