Welcome to the ADS Note Taker Module

 This page is intended for students applying to become Note Takers and those who are already serving as Note Takers.

If you are an ADS student with a note taking accommodation and are looking for procedures for obtaining a Note Taker,  please click on the Course-Notes module https://go.umd.edu/adsCourseNotes.

Students who are interested in applying to become a Note Taker must start the application process by setting up your Profile. Once you have completed your profile you do not need to complete it again in subsequent semesters.  You can, however, return to your profile to make changes or to update your information.

Click Course/Notes in the menu above to get started.

Instructions on the application process as well as information about uploading sample notes and Guidelines for Note Takers can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) tab in the menu above.


If you are chosen as a Note Taker the compensation you will receive at the end of the semester is based upon the number of weeks you take notes and number of credits for the class. If you take notes for the entire 15.5 weeks of the semester you will receive $25.75 per credit for undergraduate courses and $36.05 per credit for graduate courses.

As a reminder - students are encouraged to sign up to be a Note Taker at the beginning of each semester for all of the classes in which they wish to provide this service.  If you have any questions, please see the ADS contact information below or visit our website at https://counseling.umd.edu/ads/notetaking/.
