Students will:
  • increase readiness for degree-level study
  • gain advanced standing into specified university programs through signed articulation (transfer) agreements
  • gain transfer credits for access into the second year of the SFU environmental programs: Environmental Resource Management (A), or Global Environment Systems (B), Environmental Science (C), or other post-secondary programs (D) as follows:


  • Option A: SFU Bachelor of Environment (BEnv) Degree major: Environmental Resource Management second-year transfer

    Assured Admission Pathway

    Assured admission under this pathway requires completion of the VCC Environmental Studies Certificate with a VCC GPA of 2.75 (calculated based on the best attempt for each course). All credits must be obtained within sixteen months. In addition, for at least two of the terms at VCC students must meet a minimum course load of 12 credits. The following courses must be completed as part of this pathway: MATH 1111, BIOL 1100, BIOL 1200, BIOL 2204, ENGL 1100 or 1101, INDG 1100, GEOG 1100, GEOG 1110, GEOG 2241, EVSC 1100, and one of: SOCI 1100, ECON 1100, or POLI 1100.

    The following core courses must be taken at VCC: BIOL 1100, BIOL 1200, INDG 1100, GEOG 1100, GEOG 1110, EVSC 1100, BIOL 2204. Other (non-core) courses in the certificate taken at post-secondary institutions other than VCC may be transferred to VCC and used towards completion of the VCC/SFU pathway certificate, providing those courses transfer independently to SFU and receive the same credit at SFU as does the VCC pathway course.

    Competitive Admission Pathway

    VCC students who do not meet the assured admission pathway criteria will be considered for entry to the SFU environment programs using the existing college transfer criteria for SFU admission (currently 24 credits of transferable course work plus meeting the GPA set for that term of admission), plus program-specific requirements.

    Applicants from both pathways must meet the general SFU English language and quantitative admission requirements.
