Student life

Support Services

Education includes a lot more than just classes.
Keys to your success and satisfaction are the services and supports available to you when and where you need them.

Advising

Seneca’s integrated and individualized approach to student advising puts our learners and their needs front and centre. Our goal is to ensure you have access to the support you need, whenever you need it. We assign a dedicated Advisor, who is familiar with your program, to advise you throughout the semester. Your Advisor will help you access the services and supports available so you can be successful in your program. If you have any questions or if, at any point in time, you decide that you would prefer to change to a different program, contact our Advising Centre and one of our Advisors will be happy to assist you.

Learning Centres

For those who need a little help with their courses, our Learning Centres provide various approaches to learning support including workshops, tutoring, one-on-one sessions and exam preparation. We can help you develop learning strategies and skills essential to success in your program.

Online Learning Supports

Microsoft Office applications like Word, Excel, Access or PowerPoint are essential tools in many classrooms and work environments. Our Learning Services help ensure you have the skills and knowledge in MS Office to be successful in your courses and programs. Visit our Learning Centres for more information on enhanced learning supports.

Mentoring

Seneca has a number of unique mentoring programs designed to help students make the most of college life. SMILE (Student Mentoring in Life and Education) offers you the chance to connect with a senior student in your program area who can support you in your transition to college. NetworkRED is an online mentoring matching program that connects Seneca alumni with current students and other alumni, enabling meaningful give-and-take relationships.

Accessibility Services

If you have a disability that might affect your learning, we’re here to support you. With updated documentation, we can help you to identify appropriate academic accommodations and/or adaptive technology that may help you engage in your studies.

Counselling

The demands of college life can sometimes leave students feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Personal counsellors are available to help. We can provide support for a range of issues (such as anxiety or depression) and can refer you to specialized resources in the community.
