Student-Life Financial Assistance Academic Resources Get Connected Additional Student Resources

Welcome to the Student Parent Resource Hub!

College students with children - student parents - make up more than 25% of the college population in the U.S., and need support to help balance caregiving and financial responsibilities with work, study time, and class. At Iowa State University, we have many ways to assist you as a student parent. We are here to help in identifying resources, locating policies, learning about programs and connecting to peers.

Congress triples federal funding for low-income student parents

27 Apr 2018

"The omnibus spending package passed last month reversed that, marking the first new federal investment in student parents since Congress authorized the Child Care Access Means Parents in School program (CCAMPIS) in 1998. The spending increase -- from $15 million to $50 million -- was among a slate of new funding for college access and student aid programs. CCAMPIS provides grant awards on four-year cycles to colleges that support childcare on campus."
