Note‑Taking

Changes to Student Success Centre Services

Most Student Success staff will be moving to working remotely as of Monday March 23, 2020. Working remotely means staff can be contacted via email or telephone to have questions answered or to set up a remote meeting via telephone, Microsoft Teams or another mutually agreed upon means of meeting remotely.

One possible accommodation might be note taking. The Student Success Centre facilitates arrangements for a peer note taker. As we rely on other students to make this service successful, we cannot guarantee a peer note taker. We encourage you to check out assistive technologies for additional support and meet with the Coordinator of Academic Accommodations to discuss alternatives.

You may be eligible for financial assistance in the form of government grants to pay for note taking. Alternatively, we will pay a honourarium for note taking.

Requesting notes

Once note taking has been implemented as part of your accommodation plan, talk to the Accommodations Coordinator to make arrangements.
