It is almost time to wrap up this semester! Check out these housekeeping reminders to wrap up the summer and get a head start for next semester:

Have you talked to your departmental advisors?

If you are graduating, remember to talk to your departmental advisors to plan your degree (e.g. WQB, or missing courses). I have seen students lacking just one credit hour, so they couldn’t graduate. How sad!

Sometimes your grades from previous semester might be entered wrong. Check go.sfu and let your advisors know. They will help!

Broke? Need money?

Financial Aid and Awards

The SFU financial advisors just might surprise you. You will notice that they offer a lot of helpful ways to support your financial life. You may even be eligible for extra scholarship income.

Student Learning Commons: Book a consultation

Pro tip: You can even come in between semesters to discuss feedback you got on a paper to make sure you don’t make the same mistakes again! Intersession consultation times are limited, so book yours soon.
