Instructor Notetaking Request Response

On behalf of Disability Resource Services at Madison College, thank you for taking the time to assist with the note-taking accommodation request. This mandated accommodation is critical for success in your class.

Please discuss with the student how to best fulfill the notetaking accommodation - faculty have two options:

  1. Provide the student with a copy of your own lecture notes
  2. Identify a student in the class to take notes

If you will not be providing your own notes, make an in-class announcement regarding the need for a student notetaker. Please tell potential notetakers that:

  •  As a thank you for volunteering your time and your notes, you will receive one $25 gift card per class credit (ex: a 3 credit class = $75) plus $25 per additional eligible DRS student within the same class.
  • Gift cards will be distributed to the notetaker during the last week of the semester

Please keep the student's name confidential when making the announcement.

If no students express interest and you teach multiple sections of the same class, please make the announcement in your other class(es) until someone is identified to take notes.

Submit the information below:


You must submit a separate form for each student in your class who is receiving notes.
If a notetaker has been identified, their email address is REQUIRED in order to receive training and payment information.

If you have any questions before submitting this information, email or call (608) 246-6716 and ask for the notetaking coordinator.
