Note taking services are available to qualified students with disabilities. To begin note taking services, students must complete and submit an Accommodations Request Form with the DSPS office.
After the form is received, the student will be given a Note taker Request Memo to give to the instructor. The instructor will make an announcement to the class that a volunteer note taker is needed. The note taker will then need to go to the DSPS office to sign up to be the note taker. Please note: effective January 1, 2011, all note takers are volunteer only.
