Pregnancy and Parenting Information and Rights
Questions you may have such as attendance policies in class, make-up work and scholarships are addressed in Title IX.
Office of Gender Equity & Title IX protects students from discrimination on the basis of sex within federally funded educational programs. This includes discrimination due to pregnancy, parenting and related conditions.
Students seeking accommodation based upon pregnancy may contact the Student Ombuds or the Title IX Coordinator.
As with any medical need, the Student Ombuds staff serve students in pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-pregnancy. The ombuds assists students in understanding institutional policies and procedures and facilitates communication regarding academic concerns.
