Strong Academic Performance
You have been invited to apply through the online, supplemental application because you currently have a Business Admission GPA in a range that suggests you may be well qualified for admission to SFU Beedie School of Business.
While we want to learn more about you through the supplemental application, your marks still matter. The required courses that you complete for admission demonstrate your preparedness in the field of Business through both Business-specific and corresponding, preparatory courses.
If your current Business Admission GPA includes courses that are in-progress, make sure to keep your grades up. We review all offers of admission upon receipt of final grades for the following criteria:
- Successfully complete all required courses with a C- minimum.
- Maintain a competitive Business Admission GPA of 2.80 or higher.
- Maintain an SFU Business Course GPA of 2.30 or higher.
- Must be in Good Academic Standing
Activities and Achievements
Your application should demonstrate experience(s) in one or more of the following areas:
- Arts (performing, visual, music, and/or written)
- Community leadership and/or involvement
- Work experience
- Other areas
Strong Communication Skills
You should ensure that your communication skills (oral, listening and written) are well developed. Make sure to practice and refine these skills through your required courses, such as English, Philosophy or World Literature, as well as any additional support services that SFU may offer, such as public speaking workshops (ex. Toastmasters), the Student Learning Commons (SLC)*, and SFU Career Services.
*Please note that the SLC will not proofread or edit your work but will help you develop your own effective proofreading and editing strategies that will help you beyond your application to SFU Beedie.
You will need to provide contact information for two referees. Make sure to pick referees who can comment about the experiences that you list in your application including your academics, extra-curricular activities, work and personal achievements, as well as personal qualities.
NOTE: One reference must be from an instructor at your college or university.
