Student Note-Taking
  

What is RU noted?

RU noted! is the student note-taking program at Ryerson University. It is a confidential service offered through the Access Centre for registered students who are eligible to receive this classroom accommodation. Students requiring a note-taker as an academic accommodation are matched with a student volunteer who provides his/her notes for each class. 

If you require a student note-taker for the upcoming semester, please complete the Student Note-Taking Request Form.

If you would like to be a student note-taker, sign-up on the RU noted! website.


Information for Students Requesting Notes

How do I request a note-taker?

  1. Confirm on your Accommodation Form for Professors that student note-taking is one of your accommodations.
  2. Provide a copy of the Student Note-Taking Program Announcement to your professor (emailed to you by your facilitator).
  3. Complete the Student Note-Taking Request Form.
  4. When a note-taker is found, you will be notified.

What if a student note-taker does not come forward?   

This happens sometimes. Here are steps to problem-solve:

  1. Speak to your professor and ask if he/she will make another announcement to the class.
  2. If you're comfortable doing so, ask a classmate if he/she would be willing to apply as a student note-taker.
  3. Should these steps not result in a student note-taker coming forward within a week or two, please contact your Facilitator to explore other options, such as audio-recording your lectures. More information about recording.
