Notetaking Services

Covid-19 Update

Hello Access Center Notetakers,

Thank you all for your notetaking efforts this semester. As of March 11 2020, WSU has sent out a university wide notice that all classes will transition from face to face instruction to distance learning following spring break. In regards to notetaking responsibilities, the Access Center expects notetakers to upload notes as usual for the remainder of the semester until further notice. We understand that notes taken and uploaded may be of a different structure compared to notes from previous weeks.  Do not worry about this for now as we understand that previous instructions on notetaking duties were given prior to the new transition. 

Please continue to upload notes after spring break, and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns!


Notetaking assistance is an approved accommodation that provides equal access for students with a variety of disabilities that include, but are not limited to: limited coordination/mobility due to injury or neurological conditions, vision or hearing loss, or a memory/information processing disability. Below are the Access Center policies and procedures for Notetaking Accommodations and responsibilities for all parties involved.

The Access Center is sensitive to faculty concern regarding the possible unauthorized sharing of class lecture materials or when seeking copyright for academic material. Both students and notetakers sign a Course Content and Materials Usage Agreement which prohibits the sharing of course material in any form outside the accommodation.

To contact the Notetaking Coordinator  call 509-335-3417 or e-mail at


Are you interested in taking notes for the Access Center? You can now sign up early and be considered first for notetaker assignments.



Once you have filled out the application, return to the homepage and sign in using the "MyAccess Login" Button located on the right of the page.

You will be asked to add your classes using your Course Registration Numbers (CRNs). These can be found in your Student Center in MyWSU in parentheses below the course name. Once you have done this, our system will pair you with students who have notetaking accommodations in your classes.

Please be advised that you must read and review the Notetaker agreement carefully before signing it. If you wish to receive the stipend for notetaking services, you must have proof of eligibility to work and you must submit this to the Access Center Office Administrator within 3 days of starting employment. Students who miss this deadline will be automatically defaulted to service hours with no option to change payment method.

If you are currently a student registered with the Access Center who wishes to be a notetaker for one of your classes, please contact the notetaking coordinator as well as your Access Advisor to discuss this.
