If your Professor Letter indicates that you are eligible for a notetaker for a class, mention this to your professors when you give them the letter to sign.

Getting a notetaker

You can ask the professor to announce (or send an email) to the class that “a notetaker has been requested for this class” and for interested students to stay after class to meet with them. You can also bring a sign-up sheet from the CLASS office and ask the professor to send it around.


You can approach a student in the class and ask them to be your notetaker.
