Graduate Student Support Services
Classroom Notetaking Services
Upon request from a registered graduate student, the Graduate School will provide a student notetaker for on-campus, face-to-face, graduate credit courses. Students who wish to have a notetaker in a class should inform the instructor, who will attempt to solicit a notetaker from among the other students. Once a notetaker is identified, the requesting student will fill out a request form, available from each departmental office and bring it to the office of the Graduate Program Specialist in FH 202A. Notetakers then distribute a copy of their notes to those students who want them. Notetakers are reimbursed by the Graduate School for their service. In order to receive maximum compensation, students wishing to serve as a notetaker in their classes should complete the free notetaker training course, offered before fall classes begin. For more information, contact Katherine Spiegel, Graduate Program Specialist in room 202A, Fowler Hall or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by VideoPhone at 202-250-2472.
