SFU 101

SFU101 is a suite of programs and events that will give you the orientation you need to succeed at SFU.  Take advantage of some or all of them to give yourself a head start.

University Prep

Complete this free online course to help you transition to SFU and prepare for academic success. This course will take you step-by-step through what you need to know and do before arriving on campus, and will guide you throughout your first term. In this course you will learn about the academic culture, degree requirements, course enrollment procedures, and the wide range of opportunities and resources available to you at SFU.

You will receive an e-mail invitation to your SFU account to join the Canvas course 2-3 business days after you have activated your computing ID.

Welcome Day

Join us for this informative day which will help you start classes with confidence. The day will highlight the many resources available to you, introduce you to your faculty, help you find your way around campus and, of course, connect you to other new students.

If you have a confirmed room in residence, and/or you are an International student, there are additional orientation activities available for you.
