Diverse Qualifications Admission

SFU understands that sometimes a student’s academic transcript might not tell their whole story or show their full potential. We welcome applicants who meet our minimum admission requirements and have demonstrated commitment and/or excellence in other endeavours, or students who have succeeded in their studies despite difficult circumstances. SFU Diverse Qualifications Admission allows us to see beyond your academic transcript by taking more than your grades into consideration.
