The Office of Pregnant & Parenting Student Services (OPPSS) provides referral and support services to enrolled pregnant women, expectant fathers and parenting students through a partnership with the Virginia Department of Health. The program connects students to campus and community programs and services to help with the challenges that may occur as a student parent. Our goal is to increase the academic success and retention of our enrolled pregnant and parenting students while helping them to reach their educational goals.
The OPPSS Program offers:
Parenting & College: You can do both. We can help.
