    • A notetaker is paid for their time spent in class taking notes, and up to 30 minutes outside of class spent editing, typing, scanning and uploading their notes. The amount of time one takes notes can vary by class, lecture and content of the day. For studio classes, this can be 30 minutes or more per class, and for Liberal Arts classes, this can be up to three hours per class.

    • You can record your hours with the Paylocity App or in the website version of Paylocity

    • On the website version of Paylocity there are training modules related to timesheets, logging hours, etc.

      • If you miss inputting your time on your timesheet then email accessibility_services@mcad.edu with the hours you worked so you can be paid in the next pay period.
