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.
