COVID-19 Notice

Inver Hills Community College holds as paramount the health, safety and welfare of every member of its community. Inver Hills, however, cannot guarantee a COVID-19-free environment. Unfortunately, the risk of COVID-19 exposure exists in all public places where people are present. Inver Hills is taking all recommended steps to mitigate this risk, but we cannot categorically guarantee you will not get sick. Minimizing the risk of COVID-19 infections (or any other spread of disease) at Inver Hills is a shared responsibility. Every member of our community – including you – must do their part. Understand that if you return to the physical campus of Inver Hills, there is a risk you may contract COVID-19 and that illness, injury or death is a possible result.

Resources for Pregnant and Parenting Students

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) via the U.S. Department of Education (ED) is responsible for enforcing laws prohibiting discrimination in federally assisted educational programs and activities. These laws include Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), which prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities. All public and private educational institutions that receive any federal financial assistance ("schools") must comply with this law. Title IX protects students in all of the academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs or activities of schools and includes prohibiting discrimination against pregnant and parenting students.

  • Title IX specifically prohibits discrimination against a student based on pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from any of these conditions.
  • Under Title IX, it is illegal for schools to exclude a pregnant student from participating in any of an educational program. Schools may implement special instructional programs or classes for a pregnant student, but participation must be completely voluntary on the part of the student, and the programs and classes must be comparable to those offered to other students.
  • Schools must excuse a student's absences because of pregnancy or childbirth for as long as the student’s doctor deems the absences medically necessary. When a student returns to school, she must be allowed to return to the same academic and extracurricular status as before her medical leave began.
  • Any accommodations provided to students who have temporary medical conditions must also be provided to a pregnant student.
