Accessibility Resources Notetaker Orientation

Thank you for agreeing to be a notetaker for a student registered with Accessibility Resources. Your service is greatly appreciated by both the student receiving the notes as well as Accessibility Resources.

Accessibility Resources coordinates a notetaker program for qualified students who have requested and been approved for this support service (i.e. students with hearing loss, learning disabilities, attention disorders, physical limitations, etc.) The notetaking program is designed to ensure that students have equal access and are not at an academic disadvantage. Notetaking services also meet the requirements of both federal law and the Minnesota State University Mankato policy 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. As a notetaker you may choose to receive a letter of Recognition for Volunteer Service, a one-time payment of $50, or both the letter and the payment.

To be a notetaker you must be enrolled in the class for which the request for a notetaker was placed. You also must have received the Class Announcement from the Professor and complete the necessary notetaker paperwork and training at Accessibility Resources.

This is a three step process:

  1. Read the training material
  2. Take the online quiz
  3. Upon successful completion of the quiz, print out the Certificate of Completion and bring it to Accessibility Resources in the lower level of the Memorial Library room 132.
You are required to come to Accessibility Resources asap whether you do the online training or not.
You only need to take the training once! If we already have a Certificate from a past semester, you don't need to bring us a new one.

Proceed to training
