Below are course assignment guides for Gerontology courses taught in current and previous semesters; guides for the current semester are marked in red, but you can also check the Gerontology department's listing for  Undergraduate courses and Graduate courses,  or the SFU Current Calendar Course Descriptions Search.  Course guides are usually only updated when there's a new instruction session for that class, so information on these pages might be dated.  See also SFU's Standard Grade System.
