Academic calendars

Sub-series consists of academic calendars published in print form by the university for each academic year. The sub-series represents a complete run of all print editions, from SFU's first academic year (1965-66) to the final year for which a print edition was produced (2009-10).

From 1965-66 until 1981-82, SFU produced separate calendars for undergraduate and graduate studies. The format changed in 1982-83, with a single calendar covering both undergraduate and graduate programs. The calendar continued in this format until 2010, when the university discontinued the print edition. Since that time, SFU maintains the calendar as a web-based product only. At the present time of writing (October 2017), the digital records for the calendar from 2010 onwards remain in the custody and control of Registrar's Office / Student Services.

In 2015, the Archives digitized a complete set of the calendars. This sub-series includes both the print editions and digitized copies.
