Student Resource Guide - Accommodations

Note taking Services

  1. Notetaking services are designed to provide assistance to students with disabilities in the classroom. To establish notetaking services,arrange an appointment with a DSP&S counselor by calling the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at (650) 574-6438 and fill out necessary forms.
  2. Notetaking services will only be provided to a student who has a verified disability and whose disability-related educational limitations prevent the student from taking his or her own notes.
  3. Students needing these services are requested to either:
    Ask a fellow student in their classes to assist them with notes. Notetaking paper will be provided.
    Ask the instructor to announce the need for a note taker in the class and arrange to meet immediately after the class or in the DRC.
  4. The DRC will provide the student with duplicate notetaking paper for each approved class.
  5. Students are required to be in class to receive notes from that day unless the absence was disability related.
  6. It is the student's responsibility to notify the DRC of an absence so the note taker can be notified.
  7. The student is responsible for informing the DRC whatever changes occurred that affect the students need for notetaking services.
