About Notetakers

Faculty should make an announcement during class if you receive an email from the Office of Accessible Education notifying you that a student in your course has the eligibility of having a notetaker. Faculty should not disclose the name of the student in need of notes. Notetakers are hired by Office of Accessible Education and paid a one-time stipend of $60.00 at the end of each quarter, or they may receive a Letter of Commendation for helping a student with disabilities. Students that want to be a notetaker, should be directed to our website, where they will sign up to be a notetaker. Notetakers will usually upload their notes to our server. Students with disabilities that are eligible for notes in the class will download them directly. The notes will remain on the server all quarter so if the student with disabilities loses their notes they can download them again. Notetakers are hired on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Students who wish to record lectures are recommended to meet with each professor during office hours in order to notify the professor. Recording lectures is an excellent way for students to check notes and will build notetaking skills.
