Georgia State Students Who Are Parents
Parents attending classes at Georgia State are eligible to apply for child care.
Present proof of current registration at the beginning of each semester. The following rules apply:
Upon withdraw from classes in a semester, the child can remain in the program for the semester’s duration. The parent must enroll in classes the following semester so their child can remain eligible for a space in the center.
If the parent completes a semester but does not enroll for the next semester the child can remain in the program for a grace period of one semester. The child can remain beyond that time if the parent enrolls in classes the semester following the grace period. This applies to students who take a break from classes and those who graduate.
Note: These rules are consistent with the Student Code of Conduct and Policies (revised edition, March 4, 2014). It states: “Non-enrolled students may not benefit from the privileges reserved for ‘students.’ When a person is in non-enrolled student status for two consecutive semesters, the person then becomes a non-student. Non-students may not benefit from the privileges reserved for enrolled students.”
