We are committed to supporting student parents and caregivers!

Student parents make up about 10% of Berkeley’s graduate population. Berkeley is committed to supporting policies, programs, and services to help student parents meet their family care obligations while they pursue their academic goals.

The Graduate Council of the Academic Senate has approved academic accommodation policies designed to be supportive of graduate students with substantial parenting responsibilities, and we’ve listed grants, resources, and programs designed to meet the needs of our student parents.
