Parenting Students

According to Texas S.B. 459, effective September 1, 2023, higher education institutions offering early registration for students will also provide priority registration for parenting students. A parenting student is classified as follows: a student enrolled at Sam Houston State University who is a parent/legal guardian of a child under the age of 18.

All students who qualify as a parenting student will need to self-certify by completing the Parenting Student Form. In order to be considered for priority registration for the summer 2024 semester, you must self-certify by March 8, 2024 at 5 PM.

Students who qualify and self-certify will be able to register for the summer 2024 term beginning Wednesday, March 20th, 2024 at 1 PM.

Students will be required to recertify for each registration period. The certification form will become available to submit 1 month before registration opening for the upcoming term.
