Getting a Notetaker
Being a Student Notetaker
Thank you for your interest in being a volunteer note taker for a student with a disability. Your assistance helps to provide equal access to the class for that student. You may find that it benefits you too, because you’ll be more attentive in class. You’ll find helpful information in our videos about "What it Means to be a Note-taker" and "Tips to Being a Great Note-taker". (Quicktime required to view video. Download the most current version.)
Ideally, the exchange of notes will take place right after class in the classroom. Access Services can provide special carbonless paper to the note taker so the copy can be given right to the student. The student who will be receiving the notes may prefer to remain anonymous, so the professor may be involved to facilitate the exchange of the notes.
Notes can also be taken on a laptop and emailed to Access Services at firstname.lastname@example.org, which will be sent to the student, or in a notebook that can be brought to Access Services (Maxwell 314) for copying and distribution.
Your assistance in maintaining the confidentiality of the student is appreciated.
Academic Year: 8am – 4:30pm
