Douglas College > Study at Douglas > Ways to study > SFU - Douglas Degree Program
Earn a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree from Simon Fraser University, while studying at both Douglas and SFU.
Note: if you have completed more than 45 university transfer credits, you are NOT eligible for this program.
The SFU - Douglas Degree Program allows you to move freely and easily between both institutions to complete the requirements of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree from Simon Fraser University. Get the benefits of studying in both a smaller college environment and a larger university setting.
This is not the same as transferring from Douglas to SFU. Transferring usually involves leaving a college to attend university and submitting a request to the university to give you credit for college courses. Once you transfer to university you cannot go back to the college to complete additional credits without permission. The SFU - Douglas Degree Program is much more flexible.
The partnership degree program includes academic disciplines within the the following areas:
