Volunteer Notetakers provide notes for ARC students with disabilities who are approved for notetaking accommodations. This ensures equal access to class information. Thank You for applying to be a notetaker for a student registered with the Accessibility Resource Center (ARC). Your service is greatly appreciated by both the student receiving notes as well as ARC.

*A notetaking accommodation is not a substitute for a student’s class attendance.
