Pregnancy and Parenting Students
Davidson-Davie Community College is committed to supporting pregnant and parenting students. Title IX regulations offer pregnant and parenting students protections consistent with the protections offered to students with a temporary medical condition. Students who anticipate that they may require accommodations related to pregnancy or parenting may work collaboratively with the Title IX Coordinator, Accessibility Services, and their Medical Provider to create a support plan.
Davidson-Davie Community College realizes that students with temporary medical conditions may need services and/or accommodations to participate in the academic programs. If a pregnant or parenting student wishes to receive an accommodation, it is the responsibility of the student to initiate the process to receive accommodations. Students are encouraged to contact the Title IX Coordinator as soon as possible to discuss Title IX protections to ensure timely accommodations.
HOW TO REQUEST ACCOMMODATIONS
- Let the Title IX Coordinator know your concerns
- Have your Doctor sign the Parenting and Pregnancy Form
- Submit the form to the Office of Accessibility Services
Once your paperwork has been received, an individualized Academic Support Plan will be created for you. We will send you and your instructors a copy of the Academic Support Plan. Students should follow up with each of their Instructors to ensure how their Academic Support Plan will apply in specific classes. If you have concerns or require changes to your Academic Support Plan, please let the Title IX Coordinator or the Office of Accessibility Services know as soon as possible to ensure you have the support you need.Schedule An Appointment

Lactation Rooms are located on the Davidson Campus in the Smith building Rm 106 and on the Davie campus by request.
Single Stop is located in the Grady Edward Love Building, Suite 206. Single Stop at Davidson-Davie Community College is an opportunity for students to get connected to resources that will help keep them in school. The idea is to have a place where students can go to get screened for multiple government benefits and local community resources, receive assistance in accessing those benefits, and follow-up to make sure they’re successful in applying and receiving the benefits. Benefits and services include things like Food Stamps, child care assistance, Medicaid, free tax preparation, financial counseling, and legal referrals. The Single Stop Coordinator is Markita Nelson, and she can be reached by phone: 336.249.8186 ext. 6470 or by email: SingleStop@davidsondavie.edu. More information can be found by visiting the Single Stop page.
