- Click on the “Course Requests” tab at the top of the page.
- On the upper left side of the page, click on link for the term you would like to request notes for (ex. 20101 – for academic year 2010, first term). This will bring up a list of classes in which you are currently registered.
- Check the boxes next to the courses for which you need notes
- Click on "Save Requests"
- Access your notes: Log-on to myaccess.rit.edu with your RIT username and password
- Click on the "Class Notes" tab at the top of the page.
- Inform the Disability Services Office as soon as possible if there is a change in your schedule and/or you have decided you do not need notes for a particular class.

- Inform Disability Services if there is a concern with the notes. Use this form: Note-taking Feedback.
- FYI: Disability Services will follow-up with all students who are not accessing their requested notes to determine if note-taking is truly needed for a particular course.

- Make use of an audio recording device.
- Speak to Disability Services about note-taking workshops and/or individual assistance
