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.
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.
