Support for You

Accessibility Services

If you have a disability that might affect your learning, we’re here to support you. With appropriate documentation, we can help with academic accommodations, adaptive technologies and learning specific skills that will help you engage fully in your program at Seneca.

Career Development

When you’re ready to move from the classroom to the workplace, Seneca’s Career Development department is here to assist you. We help prepare you for success in today’s workforce and connect our graduates with employers. Through one-on-one resumé critiques, interview preparation, employer on-site interviews, career fairs, plus a job bank of 16,000+ companies posting 7,000+ jobs per year, we help you reach your career goals.

Co-ops and Work Terms

Our Work-Integrated Learning department supports you in obtaining co-ops or work terms at a company or organization in your chosen field. Working in a professional setting is a great way to bridge the gap between theory and practice and to learn the daily realities of the job and gain invaluable work experience.


Counselling is available for students who might be dealing with a variety of personal problems. The demands of school can feel overwhelming and there are times when unexpected events happen in our lives. Counsellors are here to help you through life’s difficult moments.
