Notetaking Requests for Fall of 2020
Students with a peer notetaking accommodation, will be required to email each individual professor their completed notetaker request form to request a peer notetaker for any course (regardless of course format).
The physical blue notetaker request forms will not be utilized in the Fall of 2020. The Ability Services Office is identifying safe ways for all indviduals involved in the peer notetaking process (accomodated student, faculty member, notetaker) to ensure access is maintained and virus transmission reduced. Implementing an electronic request system, will eliminate touching request forms, as well as reducing the overall number of visitors in the office. The Ability Services Office only allows safely for two visitors at one time, thus it is vital there are a very limited number of unexpected visitors in the office.
