Pregnant and Parenting Students

GVSU is committing to supporting pregnant students throughout the course of their studies.  Information about your pregnancy will be treated confidentially and sensitively on a need-to-know basis with consent.  Students are granted a leave of absence for as long as it is deemed medically necessary by a doctor.  At the conclusion of the leave, the student may be allowed to resume the status held when the leave began.  A memo will be created with you to ensure reasonable accommodations are made and your needs are met during your pregnancy, following the birth, and when you return to study. 

Visit the Disability Support Resources page to make requests for any reasonable accommodations.

Please reach out if you have any questions regarding your rights as a pregnant or parenting student.
