Student Parent Services
The state of California has enacted a new law to support parenting college students. AB-2881 requires colleges and universities in California to provide priority registration for student parents, to notify them of resources and support systems that can be critical to their success.
Porterville College is here to support students with dependent children to achieve academic success and complete their academic goals. We offer and provide state, campus-based, and off-campus student-parent services and resources.
