Note-taking Services

Note-taking services are available for students with disabilities such as hearing impairments, visual impairments, or cognitive disabilities. If you believe note-taking services would be helpful, please discuss this option with a staff member.

Instructors will work with you to ensure you have access to lecture notes. Typically, instructors will provide the notes in one of the following ways:

  • Notes via K-State Online
  • Copies of PowerPoint presentations either in electronic or print format
  • Copies of instructor’s personal notes
  • Arrange for a volunteer note-taker. The note-taker will be a student who is already enrolled in the class. The following procedure is followed when a volunteer note-taker is utilized:
    • Our office provides instructor with information on how to find a volunteer note-taker.
    • The instructor will provide the note-taker with student's contact information.
    • It is up to the student and the note-taker to make arrangements to receive notes. This could be after class or the notes can be e-mailed.
    • We will allow the note-taker to make free copies of notes in our office.

You should notify us immediately if there are concerns or issues in receiving notes in a timely fashion.
