Note Taker Information

  • A note taker is an accommodation for qualified students with documentation on file in the Disability Services Office.
  • If a student is eligible for a note taker, it will be indicated on their Letter of Academic Accommodations.
  • A note taker is a volunteer from the class willing to make a copy of their notes.
  • While a student can make their own arrangements for a note taker, they may ask their instructor for help in finding one. The instructor is not expected, nor responsible, for determining the quality of the notes.
  • The instructor’s help may be needed in making a general announcement to the class about the request and asking any interested individuals to contact them privately. To maintain confidentiality, the student’s name should not be announced.
  • Occasionally, the Disability Coordinator may contact instructors for their assistance on behalf of a student requesting a note taker.
