Student Disability Services provides note taking as a mandated support service.
All students who receive note taker accommodations must attend class, but they may need note takers for various reasons, most often because they cannot use their hands, write slowly, or cannot keep up with the amount of notes in class.
We rely on volunteers like you.
If you are interested in helping out a fellow student and having a positive volunteer experience to add to your resume, please consider being a note taker. Upon request, our staff will be happy to provide you a letter of appreciation for your services at the end of the semester that would include the total number hours/week of community service you provided (3 hours per week).
To qualify, you must have at least a 2.5 GPA.
This role involves two easy steps:
- Take notes in class.
- Within 24 hours of class, come to the Student Disability Resource Center in LeConte
College, Room 112A, and scan and email your notes using our copy machine OR email
your notes directly to the student.
