What is a direct pathway program and how does it work?

A direct pathway program is designed to provide a streamlined route for students to progress from one level of study to another, typically from a foundational or preparatory program to an undergraduate degree program. These programs are common in institutions like FIC that offer pathway programs for international students or students who may need additional academic preparation before entering a formal degree program.

The program will take place on SFU’s Burnaby campus, and students will fully benefit from small class sizes, additional hours for one-on-one teaching, tutorials for academic support, peer tutoring, access to SFU’s facilities and resources, and flexible start dates.

Transferring courses and credits

FIC is a part of the B.C. Transfer System, which operates under the B.C. Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT). This means that FIC students can apply for a maximum of 15 units of transfer credit from another institution toward their Associate of Arts Degree program. 

It is recommended that students submit their applications for transfer credit consideration at least three months prior to enrolling and starting their studies at FIC. Applications received after this deadline may not be processed in time to exempt students from certain prerequisite courses. 

The application form for transfer credits can be found here

Students who wish to explore their options for transferring courses may consult with a student success advisor.
