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 not 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 new note-taking system will send an automated email to notify the instructor.
  • The system will also send an email to the class roster requesting a volunteer.
  • Notes are available to students through a web-based program developed by the university. The note-taker may scan their notes into the program for the note receiver to retrieve.
  • Note-takers are required to complete an on-line training, quiz and on-board process through the Human Resource office. As an incentive, note-takers who fulfill their duties receive priority registration, co-curricular credit (if requested) and may receive compensation.
  •  Note-takers must post the notes electronically within 24 hours. (We no longer allow hard copies of notes).
  • Note-takers who do not go through and do not complete the on-board process with the human resource department will NOT be compensated.
  • If a note-taker has not volunteered after the first few classes, faculty may need to make a note-taker announcement or help recruit a note-taker.

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.
