When applying to Holland College you will be asked a question on your application stating whether or not you have specific physical or learning requirements. When you select yes to this question you will be advised to contact Academic Support Services so they are able to assist you in the needed areas. Once you contact the Academic Support Services they will review your file and consult with you to determine necessary supports. When it comes to ASD they often look at the supports that were in place with that student in High School and see if those supports were suitable. The college may also assign a Student Support Worker to the individual with autism to aid them in academics, problem solving, and social and group settings, primarily group projects.
