Accessibility Resources Note Taker Request

  • Accessibility Resources (AR) provides class notes as an accommodation if you have a documented disability that adversely affects your ability to take notes and you have been determined eligible for this accommodation.

    Procedures for Requesting a Note Taker

    1. Note taking must be an approved accommodation noted on your Accommodation Letter.
    2. When you present the Accommodation Letter to your instructor, you will discuss your note taking needs. If the instructor posts his/her notes, you likely won’t need a note taker for the class.
    3. You will inform AR about the courses for which you will require notes by completing the form for each class for which a note taker is needed.
    4. When your request for a note taker is received, we will prepare a Volunteer Note Taker Recruitment Memo (VNTRM) that we will email to your instructor. The instructor will:
      • Email the VNTRM to the class list
        OR
      • Print the form to read to the class or if the instructor knows of a student in the class who would be a good note taker, the instructor can give the VNTRM to the student and send them to the AR to get registered
       
    5. Once the volunteer note taker is registered with AR, you will be notified via email of the note taker’s name, email, phone number and how the note taker will provide the notes to you.

    Your Responsibilities

    1. Attend class regularly. Notes are not a substitute for attendance.
    2. You should work with the note taker to discuss how you will receive your notes, ensure the notes are of high quality, and provided in a timely manner.
    3. You should report any unresolved problems, those lasting longer than one week, to AR immediately so appropriate steps can be taken to correct the situation.
    4. If you are concerned about the quality of notes being provided, please ask the instructor to evaluate them.
    5. You must pick up your notes at least once per week if you are receiving copies provided through Accessibility Resources or the service will be discontinued.
    6. You must notify AR immediately if a class is dropped.

    By submitting the Request a Note Taker form, I agree to follow the procedures listed above.
