Note-taking Assistance Requests

Students who require note taking assistance must submit written notification to the office of Student Access Services. This can be in the form of an e-mail or letter and must include the following:

  • the name of the course and course number
  • the professor’s name and e-mail (which can be found on the class syllabus)
  • if available, the name and e-mail of a peer in the class who may be willing to provide notes

Note Takers

Note taking services are provided by students enrolled in the student’s class and are volunteers. This service is not to take the place of class and students are expected and responsible for maintaining appropriate attendance and academic responsibilities.

The student is responsible for notifying the SAS office if he or she drops the course or no longer requires the use of a note taker.

Retrieving Notes

Retrieval of notes must be on a regular and timely basis. Failure to do so will result in a suspension or cancellation of the note taking assistance accommodation.

Notes may be provided anonymously through Canvas or delivered directly to the student by the note-taker. Notes are for SAS student’s use only and should not be distributed to others in the class.
