The DSS office hires up to 80 students per semester to take notes for those with language, learning and/or physical disabilities. Students interested in applying for a note taker position, need to wait for an announcement to be made by their professor, expressing the need for a note taker in that particular class. Until an announcement is made, the position is not considered open, and the DSS office will not be hiring. Once an announcement is made, please come to the DSS office where interested parties will be hired on a first come, first served basis. In order to maintain employment note takers must complete required paperwork, take an online certificate and respond in a timely manner to all correspondence from DSS Staff.
