Beyond Borders and Boundaries
SFU Beedie is proud to offer more than 65 collaborative partnerships with international universities from across the globe. With proper planning, these connections mean you’ll continue to earn credits towards your BBA degree during your Study Abroad term while paying regular SFU tuition fees.
Earning exchange credits towards your degree begins long before you embark on your study abroad term, and your SFU Beedie Study Abroad Advisor can help you build a successful study plan.
BUSINESS EXCHANGE CREDIT (COURSE EVALUATION)
If you are seeking a Business exchange course evaluation (regardless of your SFU program), please first check the SFU Beedie Course Planning Database to determine if your course has been pre-evaluated for SFU course equivalencies. If your course is not found or if your course title/code has changed, please submit a new request here to the SFU Beedie School of Business. You will receive an email notification about your course evaluation from SFU Beedie on the status of your course evaluation. If your course evaluation is approved, the results will be posted on the SFU Beedie Course Planning Database.
Submit a Pre-Evaluation Request (pre-Exchange)
To request a course pre-evaluation, download the course syllabus from the host institution’s website and submit a new request on the SFU Beedie Database.
Evaluated courses in the Course Planning Database do not guarantee exchange credit, and SFU Beedie does not pre-approve exchange credit. however, SFU Beedie can pre-evaluate courses to enhance the likelihood of your courses receiving ISS exchange credit upon completion.
Your exchange course pre-approval request will take between 2-4 weeks to complete. Once processed, you will receive your results over email. See the rubric below to understand how an approved pre-approval request may be processed.

|Upper Division BUS/BUEC requirement||Areas of Concentration||BUS 400-Level Requirement||Non-BUS / Non-BUEC Requirements||Total Unit Requirement|

|BUS 3XX or GE 3XX3||X
|Not Enough Information to Evaluate||The course outline was not detailed enough to evaluate this course. Please submit a detailed outline for re-evaluation.|
|Not Equivalent||Although not equivalent to any BUS course, it may be equivalent to a course in another faculty at SFU.|
Request Official Exchange Credit from ISS (on Exchange)
Once you have completed your course registration and do not anticipate any changes (i.e., while on exchange), you can begin the process of requesting official exchange credit.
BUSINESS EXCHANGE CREDIT (AWARDING)
To receive your BUS exchange credit, please ensure you complete the evaluation procedure in Step 1 to SFU Beedie, and below steps to ISS:
- Arrange your official transcript to be sent directly by your host institution to us (see below for how your transcript should be submitted to ISS)
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Full name, SFU ID, host institution, exchange term, list of BUS courses and approved BUS credit as per the SFU Beedie Course Planning Database.
- Include any relevant details ISS should be aware of in the awarding of your exchange units (e.g. Graduation plans, enrollment requirements, etc.)
- Contact email@example.com if you have any questions about your BUS credit evaluation.
- Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the awarding of your BUS credits to your academic record
Not all courses are eligible for exchange credit or meet the requirements for “SFU Equivalency.” Geographical differences in terminology, course content, assessment, etc., make it critical that you evaluate the courses you wish to study before leaving on exchange.

If you are seeking a Non-Business exchange course evaluation (regardless of your SFU program), please follow the full instructions on how to submit your syllabus and other documentation to ISS via email@example.com. ISS will follow up with you about your exchange credit processing including the awarding of exchange unit to your academic record.
