Smart Services is a collection of transition programs offered by the Centre for Students with Disabilities (CSD). From the moment a student is considering enrolling at Centennial College until the day of their graduation, Smart Services offers programs designed to ensure a student’s success, both at Centennial and in the workforce.
Smart Services adheres to the mantra of Get Connected and Stay Connected. A connected student is a successful student, and a successful student is a successful graduate.
