Student Parents

There are two child development facilities on campus: the Hilltop Child Development Center and the Edna A. Hill Child Development Center, which is part of the Human Development and Family Life academic program. Both centers typically have waiting lists for child-care openings.

The Student Senate generally provides funding to the Office of Student Financial Aid for childcare grants for student-parents with children under the age of five. The application period usually begins on the first of September, with a priority deadline several weeks later. The Office of Student Financial Aid also does a budget adjustment for students with child-care expenses on request.
