SFU - Douglas degree program students

Congratulations on being accepted into this innovative and flexible program, which allows you to move freely and easily between both SFU and Douglas College throughout your Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from SFU. (If you haven't been accepted yet, please visit sfu.ca/students/douglas for program information.)

The SFU - Douglas Degree Program (SFUDDP) affords you the opportunity to take courses at both institutions, either at the same time or during separate terms. As well, you can integrate up to 60 units of transferable course work from Douglas College throughout your four year SFU degree. In turn, this provides you flexibility both financially and academically, as compared to a regular transfer program’s rigid model of first two years at college, then transfer, then final two years at university.

Financial Aid and Awards

For assistance on planning how to finance your education within the SFU - Douglas Degree Program, and information on how student loans and scholarships will work while taking courses at both institutions, please consult with SFU Financial Aid & Awards.
