Notetaking Services at Dartmouth College

Notetaking services are authorized for students whose disability affects independent notetaking in the classroom. Notetaking can be provided by volunteer students in the same class or by a paid note-taker (also known as a peer note-taker), secured through Student Accessibility Services (SAS). This service relies on the combined efforts of students, the SAS staff, and the Dartmouth faculty.

Why would a student need a note-taker?

A student may not be able to take complete or adequate notes due to a number of reasons, some of which are visible (e.g., an injured or non-functioning hand) and some that are not visible (e.g., having an auditory or language processing disorder or a hearing or visual disability). If a student has a documented disability that interferes with the ability to take class notes, then the College will help provide notetaking support.
