Frequently Asked Questions

Applications are accepted for our Fall (September) and Spring (January) terms for students applying through the High School admission pathway. 

No. To be considered for admission to the Beedie School of Business you must select Business as your first choice program in the EducationPlannerBC application. If you choose Business as your alternate choice, your application will not be adjudicated.

In EducationPlannerBC, the campus you select (e.g. Burnaby or Surrey) will determine where you take BUS 201 - Introduction to Business, which is a mandatory course for your first term in the business program.  

 Admission to Beedie is not campus specific. For example, an applicant does not have better odds at gaining admission if they apply for the Burnaby campus as opposed to the Surrey campus.

No. Applicants are able to apply for a Joint Major program or declare a Business Concentration(s) once they have been accepted. Our program is designed to give you foundational knowledge in the different concentration areas so that you can discover your passions and align future career goals before you begin to deepen your knowledge in your chosen field - we encourage BBA students to declare their concentration by their third year. 

More information on our nine concentrations, including Accounting, Marketing, Finance, Strategic Analysis and more, can be found here. Once you've been admitted, connect with a Beedie Academic Advisor to plan your next steps.

  • Attaining a competitive Business Admission GPA on the 8 required courses of a 2.80 or higher
  • Completing all 8 required courses for admission (minimum grade of C- required)

We have two admission pathways depending on your Business Admission GPA. Use our GPA Calculator to calculate your Business Admission GPA.

Fall applicants must meet this criteria by the fall application document deadline; see our How To Apply page for more details. 

To navigate the application process with confidence, we strongly encourage you to consult with an SFU Beedie advisor before starting your application.

List of required courses

The following eight required courses are used to calculate your Business Admission GPA:

  • BUS 232-4 Data and Decisions I (or BUEC 232-4 Data and Decisions I, or Stat 270-3)
  • BUS 237-3 Introduction to Technology Management
  • BUS 251-3 Financial Accounting I

Any one of the above courses may be replaced by any three unspecified transfer units in English at the 100 or 200 level (i.e. ENGL 1XX (3), ENGL1WRIT (3), ENGL 2XX (3)).

Transfer units

Students within British Columbia (BC) should refer to the BC Transfer Guide for course transferability. Sometimes, to gain transfer units for a single course, two or more courses must have been completed at your current college/university.

Students outside of British Columbia (BC) should consult with SFU Admissions via the SFU Future Students portal page for guidance on course transferability. Students may be encouraged to submit detailed course outlines in order for the SFU Admissions Department to assess for specific course transfer credit. 

Repeated courses

Of the required courses, a maximum of two of the eight courses may be repeated one time each for admission.

Should you repeat more than two, the best two are used to calculate your Business admission average. We evaluate subsequent repeated, required courses based on the letter grade achieved on the first attempt at the course.

Minimum grade in each of the required courses

Admission to SFU Beedie School of Business requires a minimum C- (C minus) grade in each of the required courses. This complies with the graduation requirements outlined in the SFU Calendar. If you have achieved a grade lower than a C- in your first attempt at 3 of the 8 required courses, you will not be eligible for admission consideration to the program as only two repeats are permitted.

Associate Degree Holders

Please note BC Associate of Arts or Science degree holders will not receive preference in admission or assessment with a GPA 0.25 points less than the competitive Business Admission GPA on the 8 required courses. 

For direct admission into SFU Beedie School of Business using only your GPA, without submitting a Supplemental Application, you must achieve a 3.30 or higher Business Admission GPA on a minimum of 5 completed courses out of the 8 courses required for admission, with the remaining required courses in progress at the time of application.

If you have completed admission requirements during the Spring 2020 term, please refer to our Pass Equivalent grade FAQ to determine your eligibility for consideration under the GPA Only Admission pathway.

Applicants with a 3.30 or higher Business Admission GPA that are not in good standing or have been required to withdraw from a former post-secondary institution, are required to complete the Supplemental Application as part of their admission evaluation. Please see here for more information on the SFU admission requirements for applicants that are not in good standing or have been required to withdraw.

We invite you to submit an online Supplemental Application if you have:

  • 2.80 to 3.29 Business Admission GPA on a minimum of 5 completed courses out of the 8 courses required for admission, with the remaining required courses in progress at the time of application.

Students from this pathway are competitively selected for admission based on a combination of academic performance and their Supplemental Application. Should you decide not to complete the Supplemental Application, you will only be considered using the GPA-Only entry requirements.

The SFU Admissions Department requests, receives, and reviews all documents (e.g. transcripts, IELTS, SAT etc.) for admission. Required documents for admission can be reviewed in your Student Center once you have submitted your application through EducationPlannerBC

If your application is placed within the GPA with Supplemental Application category, your Supplemental Application will be evaluated by SFU Beedie’s Supplemental Evaluation Committee. Applicants will be 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 Business Admission Average of 2.80 on the 8 required courses to be eligible for admission consideration. Please also refer to the minimum GPA requirements for admission consideration to SFU.

To be eligible for admission consideration to the Beedie School of Business, applicants must have final grades for a minimum of 5 of the 8 required courses, with the remaining (up to 3) in-progress at the time of application. 

Final transcripts with completed coursework will be required before offers of admission are finalized; all 8 required courses must be successfully completed prior to starting your studies at the Beedie School of Business. If you are missing 1 of the 8 required courses, you will not be eligible for admission consideration.

Fall applicants may complete up to 3 outstanding admission courses over the Summer term.  Be sure to report August 2021 as your end date in the EducationPlannerBC application so that SFU Admissions can request for an updated transcript that shows your Summer course enrollment. 

If your previous institution is in British Columbia, you can use the BC Transfer Guide to review how your courses transfer to SFU. Be sure to put Simon Fraser University as the receiving institution in the course search (e.g. from Douglas College to SFU). 

Courses from institutions outside of British Columbia are evaluated by SFU Admissions for transfer credit after you’ve submitted your EducationPlannerBC application. More details can be found above under the Required Courses section.

You may complete any missing courses 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. 

You may only repeat 2 of the 8 required courses 1 time each for the Business Major program.

If more than 2 required courses are repeated, the best 2 will be used to calculate your Business Admission Average. We evaluate subsequent repeated, required courses based on the letter grade achieved on the first attempt at the course.

If you have achieved a grade lower than a C- in your first attempt at 3 of the 8 required courses, you will not be eligible for admission consideration to the program as only 2 repeats are permitted.

We use a weighted average to calculate the letter grade for cluster transfer courses. 

Example 1: Courses With Equal Weight

DOUG ACCT 1110 (3) + DOUG ACCT 1210 (3) = SFU BUS 251 (3) & BUS 1XX (3)

(6 units at Douglas College = 3 units for BUS 251 and 3 units for BUS 1XX at SFU)

If a student received an A+ in ACCT 1110 and a B+ in ACCT 1210, the following calculation would be made: 

4.33 GPA points x (3 units/6 units) + 3.33 GPA points x (3 units/6 units) = 3.83 GPA points, which will be applied to BUS 251 (3 units)

Example 2: Courses With Different Weights

LANG STAT 1181 (3) + LANG STAT 1182 (1) = SFU BUS 232 (4)

(4 units at Langara College = 4 units for BUS 232 at SFU)

If a student received an A+ in STAT 1181 and a B+ in STAT 1182, the following calculation would be made:

4.33 GPA points x (3 units/4 units) + 3.33 GPA points x (1 unit/4 units) = 4.08 GPA points, which will be applied to BUS 232 (4 units)

We will use the course which is most advantageous, keeping in mind our repeated course policy above.

You will not receive an invitation to complete the Supplemental Application until all required documents on your to-do list have been submitted and evaluated by the SFU Admissions Department in order to calculate your Business Admission Average on the 8 required courses. 

To ensure timely access to the Supplemental Application, you are encouraged to submit your documents well in advance of the document deadline. Be sure to frequently monitor the email address you provided to SFU for your Supplemental Application invitation.
