Pregnant and parenting students are protected under the Education Amendments of 1972.
Pregnant and Parenting vs. Disabilities
Pregnant and parenting students are not considered students with a disability; however, pregnant and parenting students are protected under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Therefore, classroom accommodations should be determined, discussed, and implemented between faculty and student.
If pregnant and parenting students have medical, physical, or psychological limitations or diagnoses, they may be otherwise qualified as students with disabilities, and they are encouraged to meet with Accessibility Services to determine reasonable classroom accommodations.
