How to become a DRC Note-taker

Thank you for your interest in serving the DRC students!

Note-taking services are provided by the DRC for students who are approved for this accommodation for disability-related reasons. In order to provide this accommodation, the DRC hires Northeastern students each semester to serve as note-takers. These notes serve as an important accomodation for students with disabilities.

The Note-taker position is open to all Northeastern students. This includes any financial aid status (i.e. FWS eligible, need-based, and general Northeastern).

Requirements: Note-taker must take thorough notes, attend each class,  and submit notes to the DRC as instructed.  This role also involves maintaining the privacy of the DRC student receiving notes, and keeping any information about that DRC student confidential.

Note-takers are considered a best match if they:

  • are already in the DRC student's class,
  • are in the same major,
  • have taken the class before, and/or
  • are the closest match to the DRC student's needs.

Note-Taker Application Process

Students applying to be note-takers must have a valid social security number and a valid I-9, or approval to work at Northeastern through valid ISSI documentation.

Returning Note-takers (graduate and undergraduate):
>
Submit an online Note-taker Application each semester
>Provide complete, accurate information as soon as you register for class(es)
>To access and submit a Note-taker application, visit our forms page.

New Applicants - Undergraduate Students:

New Applicants - Graduate Students:
Prior to submitting a Note-taker Application, attend a note-taker information meeting scheduled by the DRC. IF and WHEN a note-taker information meeting is scheduled, it will be announced via the myNEU portal.

Please note: DRC Note-taking Services may contact you IF you are qualified and a best match for the requested class(es). Please DO NOT come to the DRC to inquire about Note-taking positions. While persistence is a virtue, we are very consistent with how we process applications for Note-taking opportunities at the University. Therefore, your persistence will not affect the hiring process established by the Coordinator of Note-taking Services.
