Note takers are students who are enrolled in the same class as the student. Students requesting note takers must select the course(s) needing a note taker through STARS. A note taker memo will be emailed separately from the accommodation letter to the instructor.
The note taker memo explains to the instructor the process of identifying eligible note takers. It also includes an anonymous announcement for the instructor to read to the class to recruit a note taker. Students should ask the instructor to read the memo explaining the note taker position. When a potential note taker from the class signs up through STARS, she/he will be hired as the note taker if the employment criteria are met.
Students are required to notify the Office of Accessibility if they wish to remain anonymous to their assigned note taker.
