Thank you for your interest in becoming a note-taker for the Academic Resource Center. Note-taking assistance is provided as an approved accommodation for students with documented disabilities. The process outlined below is reserved for students who have been directed by their professors to contact the ARC to sign up as the class note-taker.
If there is a class in which a registered student needs notes, the professor will announce that need to the class. After reviewing and approving your notes, the professor will direct you to email the ARC to start the registration process. There can only be one note-taker per course.
Steps to Register as an ARC Notetaker:
1.) Complete online registration for a MyARC note-taker account.
2.) Complete any necessary student hiring forms and I-9 tax processing. ARC staff will provide further instruction about what is needed during your initial correspondence.
You should upload your notes to the MyARC portal each week. If you have handwritten notes, you can use a free version of mobile apps like CamScanner or DocScan to turn photos of notes pages into files. Notes must be uploaded by 4pm every Friday (or just after your last class of the week). If you use abbreviations or symbols, make sure to explain them. Notes should be organized, comprehensive, and legible.
