• Approximately 25% of all students in college have at least one child between the ages of 0-17.

• At MSU, student parents are estimated to comprise between 3-5% of the total student population. These numbers are possibly under reported as student parents must self-identify.

• Single mothers are less likely than their peers to complete college. (Institute for Women’s Policy Research, 2017)

• Student parents who connect with other student parents and the Student Parent Resource Center find peer and social support to help them succeed at MSU.

• Student parents can and do graduate with similar or higher grade point averages than their non-parent student peers.

• Children of college graduate are 10x more likely to attend college and live well above the poverty line.
