|Established as Toronto's first public college in 1966, Centennial College offers programs in business, communications, community and health studies, science and engineering technology, general arts, hospitality and transportation.|
Centennial is committed to providing the best possible education for all our students. This includes meeting the needs of students with disabilities who may require adjustments or accommodations for their success.
If you have a documented learning disability, medical or mental health condition, physical, visual, hearing or mobility impairment, we can help. Applicants should contact the Centre for Students with Disabilities. Our service is free and confidential, but you should call well in advance of classes to allow time to arrange for help at the campus you will be attending.
Centennial College will make every reasonable effort to accommodate students with disabilities so they can meet the learning objectives of the programs of instruction in which they are registered. Equal access will be provided to all programs and services.

The Academic Improvement and Monitoring Service for Students with Learning Disablities (AIMS-LD) has been designed to assist students in developing the tools they need to succeed in college. Research has proven that working with a Learning Strategist and an Assistive Technologist, along with understanding the nature of one’s LD, are keys to success. Along with individualized learning strategy and study skills instruction, students are given training on the use of assistive devices such as speech-to-text, text-to-speech and other software programs to overcome the reading, writing and organizational difficulties that often accompany learning disabilities.
Successful Transitions: Advocacy, Resources, and Training is the CSD’s Transition Program for students with learning disabilities. Piloted in the summer of 2006, this program has several components including: general workshops introducing students to college life and the CSD services; comprehensive workshops for students with learning disabilities in areas such as self-advocacy, developing learning strategies, and other transitional issues; and a peer mentor program.
