Deaf and hard-of-hearing students eligible for notetaking services may choose either a volunteer notetaker or a paid notetaker. Volunteer notetakers are other students in the class; paid notetakers are DPRC academic assistants hired to go to class to take notes. Volunteer notetakers in the class can become paid notetakers if they qualify for the position. NCR paper is available for notetakers' use. Class notes can also be photocopied in the DPRC without charge in place of using NCR paper.
