For the most part, there are very few barriers on campus that would cause difficulty for a person with physical disabilities. If you do have an issue of physical accessibility, please contact our office. Note taking assistance is available for students who have a disability that prevents them from writing. The service must be approved by your advisor in ACCESS Disability Services and arranged in advance. It is your responsibility to provide your notetakers with paper.
You must also be in attendance for this service to be provided. These same students also qualify for writing assistance when taking tests. Once approved, you must request that your teacher send the test to the Testing Department. The student is also responsible for requesting a writer for the test. The writer is not allowed to assist you with any answers on the test.
The assistant will write only what you dictate. Tape recorders and other equipment are made available when deemed appropriate. These items must be returned at the end of each semester unless other arrangements have been made with an ACCESS advisor.
