Notetaking Services

At the graduate level, any student can request notetaking regardless of disability. To request note-taking services, graduate students should ask each instructor to identify a student in the class who would be interested in a paid note-taking position. Please let the Graduate Student Resource Center Navigation Specialist (contact us)know who is identified – or if you need additional assistance with finding a notetaker. Students interested in becoming a notetaker must complete a brief training and sign a notetaker contract for each course. They must manually clock in and out at the start and end of each class meeting.

Disability Support Services

The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSWD) provides accommodations and direct and indirect disability support services in collaboration with other departments and units. OSWD services for eligible students with disabilities include: adaptive technology, alternative print materials, and workshops and training on topics like self-advocacy and time management.
