Notetaker - Disabled Students Programs and Services

Note-Taking

  1. Students who wish to take advantage of note-taking services must make their request known to DSPS as soon as possible.
  2. Accommodation Services will notify the instructor to announce this need for a note-taker to the class. Our department will provide NCR notepaper to the student so a copy is automatically made, or will make copies of the notes.
  3. Students are encouraged to take their own notes to supplement the note-taker’s notes.
