SSWD's Responsibilities

When SSWD has hired a note taker for you, we will notify you via email.  Expect your notes to be forwarded to you from SSWDNoteTaking@luc.edu shortly after that email is sent.

We will use your Loyola email unless you specify another email to which would like your notes sent.

Your Responsibilities throughout the Semester

Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or comments throughout the semester regarding your notes.

You must attend your classes in order to receive a note taking accommodation.  Frequent non-disability related absences from class may result in a suspension of this accommodation.

If you are not receiving your notes regularly or if the note taker is not meeting your expectations, please let us know as soon as possible so we can work out a solution.  Do not wait until the end of the semester to do this!

If you no longer require notes or must withdraw from a course in which there is a hired note taker, you must inform us of this.

If You Know Someone Who You Would Like SSWD to Hire as Your Note Taker...

You may request a specific student to be your note taker.

1.) If you contact the individual on your own:

  • Please notify SSWD as soon as you find someone who agrees to take notes for you so we can have their name on record.
  • We will also need to know if they will be sending notes directly to you or to SSWDNoteTaking@luc.edu.

2.) If you chose to have SSWD contact the student you have chosen to be your note taker, simply email us their name.
