CI Disability Accommodations and Support Services (DASS) looks forward to providing you resources and disability related accommodations to assist with your educational goals and student success. DASS determines services on a case by case basis by using a variety of methods including: documentation from a licensed professional, student’s self-report, observation of an evident disability and an interactive process between DASS and student.

    2) The student requesting the accommodation may request a note taker through DASS Online Services during the first week of classes;

    • Please note that Note Taking services are not appropriate for every class! Although it may be an approved accommodation, not all course formats require this service. Note Taking applicability is largely dependent on the course/lab format(s) or environments.
