Notetakers compensation can be either early registration for the next term or a certificate of volunteerism showing twenty hours of service. Some instructors offer extra points towards an assignment or the final grade for students who volunteer on campus as well.
NOTE: Notetakers must follow through with their commitment to receive compensation of any kind.
