Support for Students with Dependents
Welcome to The University of Texas at Austin’s Support for Students with Dependents website. We celebrate you and look forward to supporting you in your continued growth and success. We realize that being both a student while parenting or caretaking has helped you develop strengths but also comes with unique challenges.
To meet the need of students with dependents to find relevant campus information and support, UT Austin’s Nontraditional Student Advisory Board, comprised of students with dependents, faculty, and staff, created this website to serve as a central information hub for this important group of Longhorns. This website aims to educate you on relevant policies, programs, and resources, as well as provide avenues to connect with other students with shared life experiences.
We encourage graduate students with dependents to visit the Resources for Graduate Student Parents page hosted by the Graduate School. You will find a wide range of resources and policies that are unique to graduate students’ academic and employment (e.g. Teaching Assistant or Graduate Research Assistant roles) statuses.
Check out the resources on this website and reach out to the Transfer-Year Experience with any questions that you have. To get the most up-to-date information from our office, subscribe to the Students with Dependents newsletter.
