Complete access to courses includes the ability to leave class with a useable set of notes. Some disabilities hinder the ability to take one’s own notes, often because of hearing, processing speed, writing fluency, or a number of other reasons. As a result, notetaking is considered a reasonable accommodation under Sec. 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
The office of Disability Services, starting Fall 2018, is now either giving students certificates for volunteering or paying our notetakers, $50 per credit hour, upon completion of their assignments. This means if you are sharing notes for a 3 credit hour class you will receive $150 for sharing your notes for that class. For notetakers that wish to receive this compensation, we need them to complete the notetaker training and submit quality notes within 24 hours of each class session. For compensation, notes need to be submitted either through our online system or to Disability Services in MC147. We will also need notetakers to have their professor sign off on their first submission of notes to verify quality.
