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, please contact the Academic and Student Support Associate in the Graduate Studies Office.
