Financial Aid and Awards

"Drop-In" Financial Advising by phone

Financial Aid and Awards has transitioned to no in-person contact in an attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19, effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Our offices will not be open to meet with students during this time.

If you require student financial assistance, you can reach us by phone by calling: 778-782-6930, Monday through Thursday, 9:30am - 3:30pm; Friday, 10:00am to 3:30pm.  You can also reach us by email at fiassist@sfu.ca.  Please visit our Contact us page to view any changes to our regular schedule that may sometimes occur.

Students submitting student financial assistance applications for StudentAid BC, Part-Time Assistance, or from other Canadian provinces are reminded that applications for the current term can be submitted up until six weeks prior to the end of the current study period, meaning, the deadline is: March 19, 2021.  Spring Term ends April 30, 2021.

Note: To know more about student support available to you, due to COVID-19, please visit the COVID-19 Student Support FAQ. You will find further information related to financial concerns you may be experiencing at this time, and you will learn more about how the new Pass/Fail grading policies and late withdrawals would impact any financial aid and awards funding administered by this office.

Part-Time Studies Applications

We have received confirmation from StudentAid BC that we are able to temporarily receive Part-Time Studies applications by email.  Please visit BC Residents (Part-Time) for instructions on how to complete and submit your application to us.
