Be a Notetaker!

The notetaker will take notes of classroom lectures, class discussions, and other oral and written communication by instructors and classmates for students who have the notetaking accommodation developed by the Office of Specialized Services.

The job of Notetaker can be a volunteer position or you can be compensated for your services as Notetaker by the College.

  • Arrive for each notetaking assignment on time.
  • Take adequate notes (with legible handwriting, good grammar and spelling skills)
  • Get the notes to the student in a timely manner.
