SVSU is committed to supporting pregnant students throughout the course of their studies. Information about your pregnancy will be treated confidentially and sensitively on a need-to-know basis with consent. Students are granted a leave of absence for as long as it is deemed medically necessary by a doctor. At the conclusion of the leave, the student may be allowed to resume status held when the leave began. A memo will be created with you to ensure reasonable accommodations are made and your needs are met during your pregnancy, following the birth and when you return to study.
