Full-serve notetaking program

The full-serve notetaking program is a convenient, confidential way to receive supplemental lecture notes from a notetaker.

How it works

The full-serve notetaking program is available to students with the peer notetaking accommodation. You can discuss your accommodation plan with your CAL advisor. Contact the CAL Front Desk by email or by phone at 250-472-4947 to schedule an appointment with your advisor.

  1. Release your accommodation letter
  2. Complete the notetaking agreement online form once per term
  3. Request a notetaker for your course
  4. Contact your CAL advisor to apply for Canada Student Grant funding for your notetaker
  5. We will find a high-quality notetaker in your course and email you whenever you can download new notes
  6. We send you a bill at the end of term

The full-serve notetaking program costs $250 per term and per course. The cost is reduced to $50 or $100 if you cancel before the deadlines listed below. We will send your bill within two weeks of the end of the term's final exam period.

Limitations

The full-serve notetaking program tries to fulfill all requests, but we cannot guarantee we will find a notetaker in your course. Similarly, we cannot guarantee we will find a replacement if your notetaker drops out of the program. We will alert you immediately if we cannot find a notetaker and you will not be billed for the course.
