Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex — including pregnancy, parenting, and all related conditions — in education and in programs and activities that receive federal funding. Title IX specifically prohibits discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from any of these conditions. Please review the information below to learn more about protections and accommodations provided by the Southern Title IX Office.
Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex — including pregnancy, parenting and all related conditions — in education and in programs and activities that receive federal funding. This means persons who are pregnant “actual or potentially” cannot be treated differently from other persons who are able to unable to participate in an educational program or activity.
Educational Programs or Activities Include
• Class Attendance
• Must be allowed the opportunity to attend classes regardless of pregnancy or parenting status.

The Title IX Coordinator, in coordination with the ADA/Section 504 Coordinator, can contact your professors informing them of your accommodations due to pregnancy and/or related conditions. When the letter is provided to your professors you will also receive a copy.
This is a good time to talk with your professors about your academic plan. The academic plan should include your anticipated absences, course material completion, setting reasonable deadlines to complete missed work due to medically necessary leave, and preferred communication when missing class due to medical appointments or illnesses related to pregnancy.
Absences Prior to Delivery
It is important to set aside some time to review your syllabus and approaching deadlines with your professors. Your professors should help you understand what material you should focus on, how they will communicate with you when you return from your medically necessary leave, and expectations for communication.
Absences after Delivery
X weeks before the end of your medically necessary leave contact the Title IX Office with your expected return date. Our office will notify your professors of when you plan to return to class.
Returning to Class
At the end of your medically necessary leave please plan to meet with your professors to discuss new deadlines for making up any missed assignments, tests, or quizzes.
