Key Steps for Note-Takers

Once you have agreed to be a notetaker for a student in your class, your first step is to view the training video which covers guidelines, expectations and requirements of being a note-taker plus compensation information. This will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Step 2 - complete the Note-Taker Agreement Form for each class  you are taking notes in.

Step 3 - If you have never received a paycheck from Madison College you will need to complete new hire paperwork which can be completed inside WorkDay.

Key Points

  • Attend all classes
  • Provide notes to the student receiving note-taking services in a timely fashion
  • Make sure your notes are clear and concise
  • If a notetaker is taking notes for more than 1 student in the same class, he/she may photocopy notes in the duplicating center in room B2275 at the Truax campus or room D127 at the Downtown campus using a copier code provided by Disability Resource Services - this code is monitored so please do not abuse it
  • Notify the student 24 hours in advance when unable to attend class and/or find a replacement note-taker

New Payment Information - Effective Summer 2013

  • If you, the notetaker, drops the class at any point, you will not receive payment
  • If the student you are taking notes for drops the class prior to the 50% point, you will not receive payment
  • If the student you are taking notes for drops the class after the 50% point, you will receive full payment
