New procedure for linking students and notetakers

The Office of Accessibility has revised its procedures to enable students with disabilities to connect with notetakers earlier in the semester.

We will begin to use the revised procedures in time for the summer 2013 sessions.

This document describes the new procedures, along with the responsibilities of the notetaker, the professor/instructor and the student. Any questions can be directed to the Office of Accessibility at ext. 7928.
