Footnotes:

  1. Students who take Langara PSYC 2320 can request credit for SFU CRIM 220.
  2. SFU’s Criminology Department recommends students take SFU STAT 203 (Langara STAT 1124).
  3. Students should consider transferring to SFU with 54 credits rather than 60 to complete the unavailable required courses for their full 60 credits of lower division requirements. The electives should include SFU W/Q/B requirements.
