Resources on SFU WQB Requirements
All students admitted to an undergraduate degree at SFU must complete a minimum of 36 units of Writing, Quantitative, and Breadth (WQB) designated courses, with a grade of C- or better. Students transferring from a BC college with 60 units should consider completing some transferable WQB courses prior to admission to SFU.
WQB courses develop the writing and quantitative abilities desired by employers and can increase your probability of gaining admission to graduate (GREs) and professional schools (LSATs). Learn more about WQB requirements at SFU’s Undergraduate Curriculum Initiative webpage.
- Writing, Quantitative, and Breadth certified courses
- Unsure if you have the prerequisite(s) needed to take a W (FAL) or Q (FAN) course? Consult with an academic advisor to determine your eligibility
- Two Foundation Courses are available to students who do not meet the grade threshold to enroll in W and/or Q courses
- Are you a student with transfer credit from another post-secondary institution, IB, A-Levels, or Advanced Placement? Find out if your transfer courses or test-credit count at the Undergraduate Curriculum Initiative webpage
