Apply to be a Notetaker

Thank you for agreeing to be a notetaker for a student registered with the Disability Services (DS) office. By becoming a notetaker you are making a significant contribution to your community!

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.

Requirements:
  • Must be enrolled in the class that requires a notetaker
  • Take neat, detailed notes during course lectures
  • Uploading those notes to the online GB ACCESS service, at least twice per week.
  • Responding promptly to any communications from Disability Services regarding the notes.
