Pregnancy & Parenting

Title IX provides for equal educational opportunities for pregnant and parenting students. It prohibits educational institutions from discriminating against students based on pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from any of these conditions. It also prohibits schools from applying any rule related to a student's parental, family or marital status that treats students differently based on their sex.

Northern Kentucky University is committed to ensuring a pregnant student’s access to educational programs.

Pregnancy Accommodations

The University is committed to creating an inclusive and accessible environment for pregnant and parenting students and employees.

Alternatively, pregnant employees (including those who are breastfeeding) and pregnant/parenting students may request reasonable accommodations through the Office of Title IX. For information about the process for requesting accommodations, please contact the Office of Title IX at 859-572-7669.
