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 Coco DiMauro in the Graduate Studies Office.
