Process and Program Changes

Note Taking Services

Unlike previous semesters, all note taking requests must be confirmed no later than a week after the start of classes. Requests that are not confirmed will automatically be canceled by the system. A reminder email will be sent to the student’s UTK email account prior to cancellation.

Testing Services

All final exams must be scheduled at least four weeks in advance of the beginning of finals. All exam requests are submitted through the Student Portal, even if late. The Late Exam Request form will no longer be available.

Text Messaging Feature

Students may sign up for text messaging reminders for exams and appointments via the Student Portal.

E-form Agreements

Students will be prompted to sign all agreements electronically in the Student Portal. Some agreements will need to be reviewed and signed each semester. A copy of the signed agreement will be emailed to the student’s UTK email account.

Alternative Format & Accessible Media

Requests for books and files in alternative format, as well requests for accessible media are now submitted via the Student Portal under Alternative Format and Communication Access respectively. The corresponding forms on the SDS website will be discontinued.
