Protection for Pregnant, Nursing, and Parenting Students
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. § 1681) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, including pregnancy and parenting status, at any federally funded educational institution. Title IX requires schools that receive federal funds to provide reasonable accommodations to students due to pregnancy and parenting needs. Accommodations may include excused absences, classroom relocation, seating assignments, and/or alternative participation options.
Title IX protections are primarily coordinated through the Title IX office. However, in cases where a student experiences complication(s) resulting from their pregnancy that affect their academics or housing, the Title IX office will work closely with the SAR office to determine and coordinate appropriate temporary accommodations.
For more information, please contact the Title IX office or Assistant Director of Student Accessibility and Resources.
