Pregnant and Parenting

South Texas College is committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive and accessible working and learning environment for all. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, a Federal Civil Rights Law, prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities. Title IX protects students in all of the academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic and other programs or activities of schools. This includes discrimination against pregnant and parenting students.

South Texas College does not discriminate against any student, or exclude any student from its educational program or activity, including any class or extracurricular activity, on the basis of a student’s pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery therefrom unless the student requests voluntarily to participate in a separate portion of the program or activity of South Texas College. See 34 C.F.R. 106.40.
