- Notetaking Accommodation Request
Note taking requests are submitted through Accommodate. When you activate through Accommodate, if note taking is one of your approved accommodations, you will see an Accessibility Accommodation Request titled "Classroom Accommodations/Note Taking Services." Be sure the course or courses you would like to request a note taker for are "checked off!" After you submit your Semester Activation through Accommodate and after it is reviewed by DSS, a note taker request(s) will be submitted on your behalf for any course which is checked off. For information on retrieving your uploaded notes from Accommodate, please view this instructional video. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 805-493-3464 or email@example.com .
