Child Care Subsidy

ASUO helps eligible student parents by reimbursing them for a portion of the costs associated with caring for their child or children. The Child Care Subsidy Program is paid for by Incidental Fees and coordinated by the Office of the Dean of Students. For more information, visit the Basic Needs website.


Eligibility for this program is based on several factors, including enrollment status and financial need. Financial need can be demonstrated by confirming participation in one of seven state and federal assistance programs, or by demonstrating low income. The program does not require that students be U.S. citizens or permanent residents; it is also available to international students. See the Program Guidelines for full eligibility criteria.
