Note taking program for DSS students
What DSS students need to know
- Students with disabilities may contact the
DSS coordinator about receiving note taking
accommodations. For more information, contact
How do I get lecture notes?
- At the beginning of each term students who
are eligible for the note taking accommodation
will be e-mailed and asked if they would like
notes. It is the student's responsibility to let
the DSS office know which classes they will need
notes for. Notes are e-mailed to you twice
weekly, or you may pick up your notes, hard
copy, at the LWC. Notes will be e-mailed unless
otherwise indicated. Please speak with the note
taking coordinator on your preference.
How is my note taker determined?
- Each semester, a handful of students are
chosen to be a note taker by the note taking
coordinator. This coordinator pulls from the
student community at Saint Martin's University
to fill the note taker position. This position
is based entirely on need. For example, if
student A is taking five classes but only needs
notes for two, then only those two classes will
have a note taker. Please let the note taking
coordinator know as soon as possible which
courses you require notes for.
Do I have any responsibilities as a student receiving notes?
- YES. Although the note takers receive
training from DSS, it is up to you to determine
whether the quality of notes are effective for
you. If the notes are not helpful, they are
sloppy, you cannot read them, or if they are not
consistent, please let the note taking
coordinator know as soon as possible. Although
you have a note taker as an accommodation, you
need to attend classes and actively take notes.
