Notetaking services are an accommodation beneficial for a number of highly varied disabilities.

At SOU, our notetakers are students taking the same course as a student requesting the service, with the same stakes for having good notes. The students are required to physically attend the classes.

Our notetakers are usually highly motivated, thorough students who want to make a difference in their community.

Notetakers are paid student employees. They are paid 10 minutes per week per credit for their time in uploading the notes that they take. For example, a 4-credit course would be paid for 40 minutes per week. In addition, notetakers receive Priority Registration for the next term.

Notetakers scan or type their own class notes and upload them to our database. The requesting student's identity is kept confidential throughout this process, though the student has every right to choose to identify themselves to the notetaker if desired.

Sure! Take notes by hand, if that's your thing, or use a laptop or other device. Notetakers are also eligible to borrow an AlphaSmart for the term, allowing you a quick and easy way to take your notes and upload them for the student who needs them and yourself! Click on the graphic to get started.
