About Us

Student Parent Working Group

The Student Parent Working Group is a collective of campus units dedicated to supporting student parents thrive at the University of California, Davis, a commitment aligned with our individual departmental missions. To amplify our efforts, this collective aims to streamline resources and advocacy efforts for student parents. We define student parents as someone who is enrolled in any level of education or training and is concurrently responsible for (or imminently will be responsible for) providing for a child of any age. They may be a biological parent, stepparent, unmarried coparent, adoptive parent, foster parent, guardian, grandparent, extended family member or sibling caregiver. Our offices provide programming and direct services to student parents, along with managing the student parent website, coordinating assessment efforts, and convening the Student Parent Advisory Board.

Transfer and Reentry Center

The Transfer and Reentry Center (TRC) is the official transfer center for all of nearly eight-thousand transfer and reentry students at UC Davis. The TRC assists all transfer students (junior college or community college to UC Davis, UC to UC Davis, out of state to UC Davis) and reentry students (+25 and/or student parents).

Programs sponsored by the TRC include Reentry Student Orientation, First Year Aggie Connection for Reentry Students, social programs, peer support groups, and referrals to on and off campus services. The TRC has also developed a Student Parent Manual for undergraduate student parents to develop goals, reflect on progress, learn about the experience of other student parents, and find resources. You can access a copy of the manual on the TRC website.
