Note Taker

The Accessibility Resource Center uses student volunteers to take notes for eligible ARC students. ARC provides lined NCR paper for the note-taker.

Please note: This accommodation must be approved by their ARC Advisor, and will depend on the symptoms and severity of the student's disability.

Request Process

  1. Students must submit a new request for each class every semester using the Service Request Portal.
  2. Once you submit your request for note takers, an anonymous/confidential email is automatically sent to all registered students in each class and to each instructor. This e-mail is a notification that a student in this class is seeking a note taker. Students are directed to a link if they are interested in providing the service. E-mails sent to classmates do not contain identifying information about the requestor. The only time that your name is disclosed is at the time you select a note taker and respond to their email/contact information.
  3. You will receive an e-mail with contact information for each student interested in being a note taker. You can choose your note taker and notify them via the "Response to Note taker" Link in the portal.
  4. If you do not receive a note taker, contact your ARC Advisor as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about this accommodation, please contact the Accessibility Resource Center at 530-898-5959.
