For SSWD Students

SSWD's Note Taking Program is committed to helping students who need supplemental notes in their classes by providing them with clear, concise, and complete notes to review. We seek to hire students as note takers who are highly motivated, organized, and dependable.  Note takers should have good listening, communication, and writing skills, as well as a respect for the note taking process. By being conscious of your note taking, you are not only helping the student for whom you are taking notes, but yourself as well!

How It Works

  • Complete and return the Note Taker Request Form to SSWD at least 3 weeks before the first day of class.
  • You wil be notified by email when a Note Taker is hired for your class.
  • You will receive notes from SSWDNoteTaking@luc.edu within 48 hours after each class session.
  • You must attend your classes in order to receive a note taking accommodation. Frequent non-disability related absences from class may result in a suspension of this accommodation.


To ensure confidentiality for the students who use our services, Note Takers will not be given the identity of the student for whom they are taking notes. All notes will be sent to SSWDNoteTaking@luc.edu and will then be forwarded to the appropriate student by SSWD staff. If you have concerns about confidentiality or feel your confidentiality has not been honored, please notify our office.


Students should submit their Note Taker Request Form at least 3 weeks before the start of each semester.
