Students with disabilities may be accommodated with record lectures in their classes. Depending upon the student’s disability-related limitations, record lectures serve to fill in the gaps of the notes they are taking in class.

Students can audio record portions of in-class lectures and discussions if there is a chance that they will be evaluated on the material. This accommodation necessitates the use of a computer, phone, audio recorder, Smart Pen, or another device for audio recording. Any discussion that includes sensitive or personal material will not be recorded. This accommodation supersedes class polices regarding audio recording in most cases.


• I will use these recordings only for my personal academic use during this course.

• I understand that faculty members have copyright interest in their class lectures and I agree not to infringe on this right in any way.

• I also understand that the faculty member and students in the class have privacy rights and agree that I will not violate those rights by using the recordings for any reason other than my own personal study.

• I agree that I will not release, digitally upload, broadcast, transcribe, or otherwise share all or any part of these recordings. Additionally, I agree that I will not profit financially and I will not allow others to benefit personally and/or financially from my lecture recordings.

• At the conclusion of the semester, I agree to delete all audio recordings.

Any questions related to this accommodation should be directed to your DRC coordinator.
I have read the contents of this document and will adhere to the guidelines set forth as well as abide by the UGA Honor Code and UGA Student Code of Conduct. I understand that failure to do so may impact the use of this accommodation. 


As with any accommodation, instructors with questions or concerns about an accommodation should contact the Disability Resource Center at drc@uga.edu or 706-542-8719.
