Pregnancy | Pepperdine University

Pregnancy

A pregnancy is a major life transition, often accompanied by a variety of emotions and critical decisions to be made. At Pepperdine, we are strongly committed to being a caring support system when any student becomes pregnant. Our goal is to provide resources, support, and assistance for the student to continue her studies. Although Pepperdine does not support an unmarried student's choice to engage in sexual relationships, we do support any pregnant student throughout the process. We will not pursue disciplinary action regarding the matter. If a student becomes pregnant while enrolled at Pepperdine, highly confidential and caring assistance is available through the Health and Counseling Centers, as well as other offices. Students are encouraged to contact the following individuals who are ready to provide confidential support and assistance:

Nancy Safinick, Director, Health Center - 310.506.4316
