A DSS Counselor or Leaning Specialist will authorize notetaking services for students who have a verified disability that prevents them from taking notes during class. Attendance during class is required to receive any notes provided by a DSS Notetaker.
Once you have met with a DSS counselor and have completed your application for services form, please contact the NoteTaking coordinator directly- Jonathan Cattarin: Jcattarin@dvc.edu to get set up with your NoteTaking Services accommodation.
Our goal is to provide tools for students to develop their own note taking habits and abilities or to provide students with notes as a means to study lecture material after class. Tools include:
Please contact Jonathan Cattarin at email@example.com with questions.
Important: Notes are not a guaranteed service since it relies on volunteers.
Note Taking Requests often take 2 weeks or more to be matched up with a note taker.
Students interested in being notetakers should contact the note taking coordinator within the first two weeks of each term and within one week of summer session. If you are contacted by phone or email, you should respond as quickly as possible. Any lapse in communication and notes may make you ineligible for compensation.
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.
