Plan Your Degree & Courses

Plan Your Term

Once you have a general outline for your degree, it’s time to map out your courses. An academic plan prepares you for success and helps you strike the right balance when determining your course load and choosing both electives and required courses. We recommend enrolling in course planning activities and that you take advantage of available assistance from our Academic Advisors. They can help personalize your plan and guide you as you select the optimal combination of courses needed to reach your goals.

Adjusting to a new academic environment can be challenging, but it is also an opportunity to learn study and time management skills. From success strategies and tools to GPA calculators, the SFU Student Services Academic Advising offers resources and advice for success inside and outside the classroom.

Course outlines communicate critical information about a class such as learning outcomes, delivery format, expectations, reading lists, assessment formats and more. Different professors often teach the same course in different ways, with varying expectations. It is important to evaluate a course outline to determine how it will fit in with your overall workload and personality.

    Course outlines usually contain all relevant details about prerequisites. General information about Business Major program and course requirements resides on the SFU Academic Calendar entry for SFU Beedie School of Business.

    When to See an Advisor

    From your first day as an SFU Beedie student, a team of experienced Academic Advisors is ready to field your degree planning questions. We recommend meeting with an advisor at least a week in advance of your enrollment date (typically in the third month of the term). Come prepared with your questions and a draft term schedule. Drop by early, as the first few months of school are a busy time and appointment times fill quickly.
