Note-taking Services Agreement
In accepting note-taking support, I agree to the following terms and conditions:
I will pick up my accommodation letters from DS at the start of the semester and will present my
professors with my accommodation letters soon after.
It is my responsibility to request a note-taker after attending class, presenting my
accommodation letter to my professors, and determining if there is a need for note taking
Note-takers are approved for one semester. I acknowledge that I am required to renew my
request each semester by completing the Note-taker Request Form and Agreement. I
understand that I will not receive note-takers until both forms are submitted to Disability
I will notify DS immediately if I drop or add a course requiring note-taking.
I understand that it takes two-three weeks to identify note-takers and that if I add a course after
the start of the semester there will likely be a delay before a note-taker is in place.
Should I choose, I can make myself known to my note-taker and arrange to pick up notes
directly from him or her. Otherwise, I may remain anonymous and understand that notes will
be available to pick up or via email.
If I find that I no longer need notes I will let DS know immediately so that note- taking support
can be cancelled.
If a note-taker is absent, or a note-taker has not yet been identified, I may use a recording
device until the note-taker returns or is hired.
Note-takers are only available for taking in-class notes. I will not request anything additional of
my note-taker(s), such as organizing notes, or typing papers.
I will notify DS immediately if there are any problems with the quality or timing of notes taken
If applicable, I will pick up notes from DS on at least a weekly basis; I acknowledge that failure to
pick up notes for three consecutive weeks, without a reasonable and timely explanation, may
result in cancellation of note-taking support.
I agree to the above terms and conditions of the note-taking support being provided to me.
