Note Taking Services

Note Taking Services

DRES will assist students in securing note taking services. Students for whom note taking services have been approved should pick up a "Notetaker Information Packet" for each class in which such services are required.  Each packet includes a letter to the professor identifying the student as having a disability which warrants the provision of note taking support services.The letter suggests three alternatives for the provision of this accommodation:

  1. The professor providing the student with a copy of his/her personal lecture notes;
  2. A teaching assistant being assigned responsibility for taking notes in the class; or
  3. The professor recruiting peer notetakers from the class.

Students for whom note taking service has been determined to be a reasonable accommodation may have the volunteer email notes to them, receive a DRES copy card to pay for the copying of class notes, or receive carbonless copy paper.
