The Title IX office manages student requests for pregnancy-related accommodations under Title IX. To ensure a pregnant student’s access to educational programs, a school must make adjustments that are reasonable and responsive to the student’s temporary pregnancy status. These adjustments are known as "accommodations." Accommodations often require mutual cooperation between the student and professor to develop and implement.
Augusta University is obligated to provide the following accommodations:
As a general matter, students must be afforded reasonable academic accommodations due to pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions, to the extent that such accommodations would not result in a fundamental alteration of the academic program or impose an undue burden on the University. Students should be given an opportunity to make up missed work, to the extent possible, and be provided with flexibility in how the missed work will be made up.
To request reasonable accommodations for pregnancy and childbirth, please contact our office. Please note, you will be required to provide documentation from an appropriately licensed medical professional indicating the requested accommodations are medically necessary.
Augusta University has lactation spaces available on the Summerville and Health Sciences Campuses at the following locations:
