A note taker is a student who is enrolled at SCC and volunteers to share their notes with another student who is in the same class and is registered with Disability Support Services (DSS).
Note takers are provided with NCR (2-part) paper, which duplicates their notes. Note takers may also use designated copy machines if using their own notebooks. Another option is to use their laptop (if permitted by instructor) and e-mail the notes to the student.
In order to become a note taker, it is necessary to attend class regularly and take clear notes.
Why Become a Volunteer Student Note Taker?
Student note takers provide a valuable resource of sharing their notes with an SCC student who is registered through DSS with a documented disability.
Student note takers are provided with a $75 scholarship at the end of the semester as a thank-you for volunteering.
We would be happy to provide a recommendation letter for your service, to use for future employment or scholarship applications.
Student note taking is a great way to volunteer and help your fellow classmates.
How Do I Become a Volunteer Student Note Taker?
Contact DSS and let them know which semester or semesters you are interested in volunteering. If there is a student in one of your classes who is in need of a note taker, you will be contacted by the office.
