Note Taker Registration Instructions
As a note taker you are considered an employee of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural
College, and you must complete the online employee orientation unless you are or have
been employed by ABAC or have been a note taker before and have completed the
process. Please call the Student Development Center at 229-391-5135 for instructions.
As an employee of the Student Development Center you must maintain
confidentiality about the student(s) or whom you are taking notes.
There are two things you have to do:
1. Visit the Human Resources Right-To-Know Training at:
Review all ABAC policies and print the required certificate upon completion of the
training. If you have any problems with the online orientation, please contact the
Office of Human Resources at 229-391-4888.
The following information is important for accurate completion of the orientation.
- Note takers are non-benefit employees
- Your department is the Student Development Center
Return all completed forms to The Student Development Center. You must present a
valid Driver’s License and Social Security Card. If you do not have a SS card only a
Birth Certificate or Passport will suffice.
2. You must know the name of the student you are taking notes for; the name/number of
the course and the instructor to register for payment. Payment will be mailed to the
note taker at the end of the semester after the course instructor verifies you have met
the requirements as a note taker.
Mandatory: Requirements that must be met in order to be paid as a note taker:
1. You must attend every class session. Notes must be thorough, accurate and legible. If
you have any questions please have the instructor review your notes. If you must miss
a class session, it is your responsibility to arrange ahead of time for another person to
take notes and leave the notes in the designated location or give to the student with
whom you are working. It is your responsibility to locate another excellent student in
the course (you may consult the instructor) and obtain contact information from the
temporary note taker for yourself and the Student Development Center staff (landline
#, cell phone #, email address, etc).
2. You may not miss more than a certain number of classes or you will not be paid even
if you worked the whole semester. The following is the rule:
MWF 50 minute classes (eg, 8:00-8:50 AM) – 3 classes
TR 75 minute classes (eg, 9:30-10:45 AM) – 2 classes
Labs 180 minute classes (eg, 6:00-9:00 PM) –1 lab
Evening classes 75 minutes (eg, MW 6:00-7:15PM) – 2 classes
Evening classes 150 minutes (eg, T 6:00-8:30 PM) – 1 class session
MTWR 50 minute classes (eg, 8:00-8:50 AM) - 4 classes
3. If, due to documented medical reasons or medical emergencies (for example, you
become seriously ill and must miss your own scheduled classes) you cannot fulfill
your note taking responsibility for the rest of a semester or a portion of a semester,
your pay will be prorated.
4. You must provide a copy of the notes to the student immediately. If you have another
class after the class for which you took notes, simply make arrangements with the
student when and where the notes can be picked up at the student's convenience, as
he/she may also have another class scheduled. Copies can be made in Division offices
and a pick-up location can be arranged. Also, copies can be made in the Student
Development Center and left for the student with the Senior Secretary. Please write the
student’s name, the course and date on the notes.
5. It is the responsibility of the student needing notes to communicate to the note taker
and the Student Development Center if any of these rules have not been followed.
I agree to follow all of the policies and regulations documented above in order to serve
as, and be paid as, a note taker. I understand if I fulfill all of these requirements, I will be
paid $_________ at the end of the semester.
