Student and Note Taker Absences

Note Taker Absence

If the note taker is not able to be in class as scheduled, the note taker will notify Student Accessibility Services and every effort will be made to find a substitute note taker.  Students will be notified of any note taker absence through their email addresses. 

If a suitable substitute note taker is not available, Student Accessibility Services will provide the student with an electronic recording device to record the lecture.  It is the student’s responsibility to pick up the recording device from Student Accessibility Services. Recorded notes may be converted to hard copy or digital copy by Student Accessibility Services, when it is considered a disability-related accommodation.

Student Absence

Students must provide reasonable notice to a Student Accessibility Officer when they are planning to be absent from any class, or when they withdraw from a scheduled course.  Reasonable notice is typically not less than 24 hours before the scheduled class.

Notes may be provided to students for a missed class if they have discussed their absence in advance with their Accessibility Consultant and the absence is deemed to be related to their disability.

Should you have any questions or concerns about a student’s absenteeism, you are encouraged to speak with the student’s Accessibility Consultant.​
