"The unrecognized genius is like a lost masterpiece in a dusty storeroom. Its beauty never gets revealed to the world." - from Faded Light, a poem written by a student about his struggle with his Learning Disability
In the Centre for Students with Disabilities (CSD) at Centennial College, we strive to create the kind of community in which you CAN reveal your beauty to the world! We provide the counselling, support, advocacy and accommodations; the motivation and determination come from you. With dedication and hard work, along with a little help from your friends, reveal your genius!
START Smart Summer Conference
The transition to college is a challenging one – especially for students with disabilities. Don’t worry you are not alone and we are here to help. For many of you, this will be the first time you will need to advocate, organize, and utilize resources. The CSD and Centennial College have many resources to help you. To learn more about these resources we encourage students with a documented learning disability to attend our START Smart Summer Conference.
Please have a look at the summer START Smart documents below for information about our transition program.

If you are unable to join us for the START Smart Conference, students with all disabilities along with their parent/guardian can attend our “Introduction to College Life Workshop”.

Centre for Students with Disabilities – Tuition Fee Policy Agreement
Are you taking a reduced course load because of a DOCUMENTED DISABILITY?
Effective September 2007, students with disabilities who require the accommodation of a reduced course load due to the impact of a documented disability may be eligible to have tuition fees reduced for the final courses needed to complete their program. In order to be eligible, the following criteria must be met:
1. The student has a permanent disability, and has provided the CSD with supporting documentation.
2. One of the accommodations for which the student has been approved is being able to take a reduced course load.
3. The student will pay the same tuition fees for a program as students without a disability, until such time as the full program fee has been paid.
4. This policy covers only courses that have been completed successfully and which have been paid. It does not cover courses that need to be repeated due to late withdrawal or unsuccessful completion. Courses must be dropped by the day 10 add/drop deadline (first 2 weeks of semester). If courses are not dropped by that deadline, or the student fails a course, the fees for that course(s) will be deducted from the calculation of program fees before the student can be eligible for reduced tuition. The student will be required to pay full fees for that course(s).
5. If the student received a refund due to the reduced course load, the student must pay that amount before the tuition capping policy can take effect.
6. After the full program fee has been paid, the student will only be charged $20 per course plus any additional college fees, until the program has been completed.
7. This policy covers only ONE program. If the student changes/has changed programs at any time, the tuition fee payments for the current program must be paid as a 1st semester student.
8. If the student receives financial assistance through OSAP, the student must inform Student Financial Services that they are eligible for this tuition fee subsidy.
If you are taking a reduced course load, please see your Disabilities Counsellor.
