Frequently Asked Questions

The Beedie School of Business recognizes that academics alone do not tell your whole story. Starting with the Fall 2024 intake, transfer applicants will demonstrate preparedness for our program through their efforts inside and outside of the classroom.

As an applicant, you will be evaluated on your CGPA and a Supplemental Application. The Supplemental Application is a space to showcase your personal experiences, achievements and communication skills. You have worked hard, and we want to better understand the person behind your grades!

A driving goal for our new admission model is to increase accessibility for students wishing to transfer into our program. You will have greater freedom over where you study, what you take, and how you prepare yourself for SFU Beedie. Admission success will continue to be based on the size and competitiveness of the applicant pool.

A CGPA allows our admissions team to assess your performance in all academic subjects, and is aligned with College/University Transfer requirements across SFU.

The 4 required courses assess fundamental qualitative and quantitative skills, are universally recognized, and commonly used for business school admission. These courses are built into the first year of our BBA program.

Aside from the 4 required courses, you have the flexibility to choose the remaining courses that satisfy the 24 transfer credit minimum to apply to SFU. Students wishing to stay on-track with our first year BBA requirements are encouraged to review our Degree Checklists by year and connect with a Beedie Academic Advisor for guidance on term and degree course planning. 

The Beedie School of Business accepts applications for our Fall (September), Spring (January), and Summer (May) terms for students applying through the College/University Transfer pathway.

No. Applicants are able to apply for a Joint Major program or declare a Business Concentration(s) once they have been accepted to the program. For more information on our nine concentrations, including Accounting, Marketing, Finance, Strategic Analysis and more, visit Concentrations.

The SFU Admissions Department requests, receives, and evaluates all documents (e.g. transcripts, English language requirement test scores etc.) for admission. Required documents for admission can be reviewed in your Student Center once you have submitted your application through EducationPlannerBC.

Your Supplemental Application will be evaluated by SFU Beedie's Supplemental Evaluation Committee. Applicants are competitively selected for admission based on a combination of their academic performance and Supplemental Application.

You may review your item statuses by reviewing the To Do List in your Student Center. Items that have been received by SFU Admissions will have a green check mark.

Applicants must present a minimum 2.67 CGPA to be eligible for admission consideration. Please also refer to the minimum GPA requirements for admission consideration to SFU.

You may complete any missing course(s) at another institution (review the BC Transfer Guide for eligible courses), or apply to another Faculty at SFU and if admitted, pursue our Internal Transfer admission pathway for current SFU students. 

Your CGPA for admission is calculated on all transferable courses attempted. If you repeat a transferable course for admission, the highest course attempt will be used in the GPA calculation.

At the SFU Beedie School of Business, we believe marks matter, but so do your experiences, achievements, and communications skills. That’s why we’re asking you to submit your original work, without the assistance of ChatGPT, etc. Large language models such as ChatGPT and others reduce your voice and creativeness in your responses. We’re not looking for a perfect response. We’re looking to learn more about you, your experiences, and why you want to study at the SFU Beedie School of Business.

You will have access to the Beedie Supplemental Application once you receive an email confirming your SFU Student ID number and password.  

You can login to the Supplemental Application Portal via the link provided on your goSFU To Do List.

Yes. SFU Beedie School of Business applicants with a complete and eligible Supplemental Indigenous Undergraduate Admission form are not required to submit the Beedie Supplemental Application. Connect with SFU's Indigenous Student Recruitment team for details on the application process.

I want to work for companies that don’t just make a profit, but try to make a positive impact in the world, and of course, are in fashion.

I'm working on starting EDGE SFU to support students who might not have the same opportunities as other students. The goal is to help to provide financial support, scholarships, and job postings. It’s a lot of work getting this club off the ground, but I enjoy helping other students.

The most important thing is to get involved. It’s up to you to make this as enriching as possible, and all you have to do is raise your hand to volunteer or participate in events and clubs.

The flexibility SFU Beedie offers enabled me to combine my interests in my joint major in international business and economics, but also offered so much through experiential learning and opportunities to get involved. There is so much that the time passes very quickly, so it’s important to make the most of it while you can.

You will never know unless you try. There are always going to be opportunities to add value – it's just a matter of how you view it.
