The Day Planner Guide to Success


The special needs office of Canadore College has developed a "day planner" to help their students manage their time more efficiently.

Both professors and students can benefit from the information presented in this guide. The first section focuses on Canadore College's special needs functions and services that are provided. Office procedures are outlined and a welcome to faculty and students is presented.

The first section discusses procedures for tests and exams, books-on-tape, peer tutoring, personal, academic, and career counseling. This chapter also addresses financial aid and awards, residence life; security, health and library services.
