Note-Taking Procedures for Faculty

The University of North Georgia’s Student Disability Services (SDS) helps qualified students with disabilities locate note-takers. The notes provided are supplements to the student’s own notes, not substitutes for them. Notes provided are for a student’s personal study use only and are note to be shared with other individuals.

Confidentiality is of the utmost importance with regard to college students with disabilities. Discussions with a student about accommodations or other disability-related needs must always be held in private.

  • The student requesting a note-taker should review his/her Accommodation Notifications with their instructor.
  • If a student requests a note-taker in class, the note-taking system will send an automated email to inform the instructor. The system will also send an email to the class roster requesting a note-taker.
  • Notes are available to students with the accommodation of obtaining class notes through a web-based program developed by the university. The note-takers may scan their notes into the program for the note receiver to retrieve.
  • Note-takers are required to complete an online training, quiz and on-board process through Human Resources. As an incentive note-takers who fulfill their duties receive priority registration, co-curricular credit and compensation.
  • Note-takers must post notes electronically within 24 hours. (We no longer allow hard copies of notes).
  • Note-takers who do not go through will NOT be compensated.
  • If a note-taker does not register after the first few classes, faculty may need to make a note-taker announcement or help recruit a note-taker. "A note-taker is needed for this class. If you would be willing to post a copy of your notes after each class, please log onto to register. Note-takers may earn up to $100 per course per semester, based on work completed. Note-takers may also earn early registration for next semester’s classes. Note-takers are assigned on a first come-first serve basis."
  • Please refer students who would like to register to the note-taking website (login required)

If you or your students have any questions or concerns regarding the note-taking service, please contact:

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
