Title IX - Pregnant Students

Students who are pregnant, gave birth, had a false pregnancy, terminated a pregnancy or are medically recovering from these conditions may be entitled to Title IX protections and accommodations.

Students who are pregnant or parenting have the right to:

  • Not be told to drop out or change education plans
  • Be provided a comfortable space to breastfeed or pump milk
  • Be excused from class due to pregnancy-related appointments (pre-natal, give birth, have an abortion, attend a pre-natal visit, or be on doctor ordered bed rest)
  • Not have excused absences count against a grade
  • Be provided the opportunity to make up missed work from excused absences
  • Not be harassed as a result of a pregnancy
