The Office of Counseling and Testing will help students in obtaining note takers, although equal responsibility is required on the part of the student. Carbonless paper and photocopying services are available to students working with note takers.
Suggestions for Obtaining a NoteTaker :
You may approach a student in your class and explain that you would like to share notes with him or her. If you do not feel comfortable approaching other students, you may approach your professor and ask him or her to make an announcement in class. The announcement can be as simple as this: "A student in class needs help with notetaking this semester. This is a paid position. Please call the Office of Counseling and Testing at 843-661-1841 if you are interested."
Our office can then screen applicants to see if they are in good academic standing with the university. Notetakers will be paid $7.00 per hour for every hour that they are in class with you. After the first week or two, you should approach the professor to see if the notes you are receiving are adequate for the class. Any problems with the note taker must be addressed to the Office of Counseling and Testing immediately so that we may fix the error or find a new note taker.
