Keys To Degrees Single Parent Program

An innovative program for single parents at Eastern Michigan University

The Keys to Degrees Single Parent Program is designed for academically-qualified single men and women who are the custodial parents of one child age 18 months or older when the program begins.

Our Goals

The primary goals of The Keys to Degrees Single Parent Program are to provide the essential tools for students to:

  • earn a baccalaureate degree from Eastern Michigan University;
  • successfully balance academic, work and family obligations;
  • become economically self-sufficient in their chosen field of study;
  • be responsible and contributing members of the community; and
  • live and learn on campus with their children.
Student Benefits

Through involvement in the program, student-parents will:

  • be eligible to graduate in three years, contingent upon major and academic standing;
  • live on campus and attend classes year-round;
  • pursue internship opportunities related to their selected major;
  • acquire knowledge, skills and information about opportunities for further education and employment; and
  • actively attend academic, personal development and relevant workshops.

Note: We are not currently accepting any new members into the residential portion of the program. However, we are still accepting applications for future semesters. We are also still available to help with additional resources and will be having multiple workshops and events throughout the year.
