Become a Volunteer Student Note Taker

Who Is a Volunteer Student Note Taker?

  • 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.
  • After you are contacted by DSS, you will be asked to review and sign a Volunteer Student Note Taker Agreement Form.
