SFU Math Requirement To satisfy the quantitative skills requirement all applicants must present a minimum grade of 70% in the applicable math course required for admission. Applicants with a grade of 60-69% must either: Score a 70% (20/30) on a Diagnostic Skills Exam Or Achieve at least a “C” grade in a Foundational Course within the 1st 30 credits at SFU. Students with less than 60% will be denied admission
