Volunteer note-takers are part of a community that supports students with disabilities through the Volunteer Note-taking program. As a volunteer note-taker you:
- Register as a volunteer note-taker on the Note-taking Portal.
- Attend your class regularly and take effective notes (if you drop the class, please inform us immediately).Upload your notes after every class to the Note-taking Portal within 24-48 hours.
- At the end of term, request your Certificate of Appreciation and/or initiate the process for Co-Curricular Record (CCR) validation (read instructions below).
Request your Certificate of Appreciation
To request your Certificate of Appreciation, please email email@example.com with the following details:
- Full name
- Student number and UTORid
- The course(s) that you volunteered for
- The academic year of the course(s) (e.g., Fall 2023, Winter 2024 academic term, etc.)
Note: Depending on when you submit the request, it could take up to one to four weeks to create the certificate.
Co-Curricular Record (CCR) validation
To receive a CCR (Co-Curricular Credit) you must initiate the CCR validation process through CLNx. To find out how to request validation approval please visit the CCR Frequently Asked Questions for guidance.
CCR activity cannot be backdated; it is important to know your deadlines. The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is validated once a year in June.
The accommodations administrator has the right to revoke CCR credit for the following reasons:
- The note-taker does not meet the 80% uploading criteria of least two H credit/one Y credit courses during an academic year.
- The notes were not consistently uploaded.
- The notes have not been uploaded within the 24-48 hour time period.
- The notes uploaded were poor quality.
- The administrator suspects the notes were plagiarized.
