Notetakers assist students who have disabilities that prevent them from taking effective lecture notes. The need for a notetaker must be appropriately documented. Winthrop provides notetaker services to students with appropriate documentation.
Scribes assist students when their disabilities prevent them from writing responses on tests. Winthrop University provides scribe services only to students with appropriate documentation. For examinations, the scribe will be a Test Center or ODS staff member.
The University provides ASL (American Sign Language) interpreters for courses and other academic-related activities (e.g., cultural events) for students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing. Winthrop contracts with and provides qualified interpreters through area agencies or with independent interpreters from the Rock Hill or Charlotte area.
If you have other questions or concerns about providing accommodations or the accommodations process, please contact the Office of Disability Services at 803/323-3290.
