Pregnant and Parenting Students

Absences related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions will be excused for as long as the student’s treating physician deems medically necessary. Upon return to the institution, the student is guaranteed to return to the same academic and extracurricular status as prior to the excused leave. This includes allowing the student the opportunity to make up any missed course work or by allowing reasonable alternatives to make up missed course work. Excused absences related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions will not impact any aspect of a student’s grade that may be based upon class participation or attendance.

Pregnant or parenting students will be afforded the same rights and accommodations afforded to students with temporary medical conditions.

If you feel that you have been discriminated against upon the basis of pregnancy or pregnancy related status, please contact the Title IX Coordinator. For more information, please review the Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct Policy.
