Notetaking Orientation


Thank you for agreeing to be a notetaker for a student registered with the Disability Services (DS) Office. Your service is greatly appreciated by both the student receiving the notes as well as the Disability Services Office.

The DS Office coordinates the notetaking services for qualified students who have requested and been approved for this support service (i.e. student with a hearing loss, learning disability, attention disorders, physical limitation, etc.). The notetaking services are designed to ensure that students have equal access and are not at an academic disadvantage. Notetaking services also meet the requirements of both federal laws and the University of Wisconsin System and UW-Green Bay policies for qualified students.

Serving as a notetaker for a student can be a great opportunity for you to gain volunteer experience for an academic program or major and to add to your resume. Please consider volunteering your time. The DS Office will distribute Certificates of Volunteer Service for those who choose to volunteer instead of being paid.

To be a notetaker, you must be enrolled in the class, be responding to a request in class for a notetaker and complete the Notetaking Agreement Form. You will also need to complete a brief online training. This is an easy process. First read the training material and then take the online quiz. If you have any difficulty with the training or quiz please contact us at

You only need to take the training once! If you have completed the training in a previous semester, you don't need to re-take it!

You must complete the online training within three (3) days of hire.
