  • Minimum 5 approved grade 12 courses for admission (including program-specific requirements)

SFU will remove one grade 12 course from the evaluation if you present six or more approved courses as follows:

  • If you present six or more approved List A courses, SFU will remove the lowest, non-required List A course
  • If you present five or fewer List A courses, your lowest List B course will be removed.

All approved grade 11 and 12 courses will be used in the admission evaluation.

A greater emphasis is placed on List A courses in the evaluation as they are indicators of success for that particular program.
