Welcome to PALS Note Taking Services

Peer Assisted Learning Support (PALS) offers note taking services as an academic accommodation to students who are registered with Accessible Learning Services. Note taking is designed to supplement the notes that students take themselves. Our unique note taking service provides note creation by professional note takers. Students audio record classes using a cell phone, tablet, digital recorder, laptop or other device and upload the audio files to their secure account with the service provider. The service creates notes within 48 hours and make them available on the students’ secure account for download.

Am I Eligible for Note Taking Services?
