What are Title IX Pregnancy Accommodations?

The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX states that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be, subjected to discrimination under any education program of activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Title IX also 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.

South Plains College may grant a leave of absence to a pregnant or parenting student for as long as it is deemed medically necessary. Completion of the process, and prompt and appropriate communication by the student is necessary to ensure appropriate accommodations are provided. Students are responsible for completing all assignments and course expectations. To begin the process for Title IX Pregnancy Accommodation, click here:

Please see reference materials for these guidelines at the US Department of Education Title IX publication “Supporting the Academic Success of Pregnant and Parenting Students” here:

If you have any questions regarding your rights as a pregnant or parenting student, please contact the
SPC Health & Wellness office at 806-716-2529 or email

The First Step Program is designed to assist South Plains College's financially challenged career and technical education majors in the following areas:

  • Financial assistance in the form of gas mileage reimbursement at $15.00 per day
  • Financial assistance with childcare at $100.00 per week per child
  • Referrals to additional resources within South Plains College and the surrounding communities

Support is available for students who are enrolled in Career and Technical Education Programs that are dominated by the opposite gender.  The goal is to provide both monetary supports to cover expenses such as textbooks, scrubs and supplies, encouragement and links to other resources to help nontraditional students complete their programs.

For example, Non-Traditional Scholarship (NTS) is looking for men going into fields of Nursing and Cosmetology and women pursuing careers in Auto Tech, Heating and Air Conditioning, Welding, and Industrial Manufacturing - just to name a few.

Students must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA, maintain monthly communication with counselor, must present receipts to verify expenditures, and reapply each semester.

You can find the application for FS/NTS here.
