During their time in the program, students of a newly born or adopted child may be eligible for paid parental leave. Per the Graduate School's policy, "male or female parents of a newly born baby or a newly adopted child who are full time graduate students are eligible for this accommodation. In the case of two graduate student parents, there would be a limit of one accommodation per family. It is expected that the accommodation will be used only once during the student's time at Baylor, but special situations may be negotiated on a case by case basis."
For more information about submitting a request for parental leave, please visit the Graduate School's website here. For any additional questions you may have, please contact the Academic and Student Support Associate in the Graduate Studies Office.
