The Middle-Income subsidy is funded by the Student Parent Support Center to support student parents as they complete their education. This subsidy is meant to support student families who do not meet the income guidelines to qualify for CCAMPIS but are still needing help in covering child care expenses while going to school. University of Utah students who are eligible may receive financial support of up to $1,500 per semester paid to their child care center. Student families must meet the following guidelines in order to receive a subsidy:

  • Student parent must be enrolled and in good standing (cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above) at the University of Utah (either full-time or part-time) during the semester for which the subsidy will be received. Grad students must either be taking classes or registered for thesis hours
  • Child must be enrolled in one of the on-campus child care programs (UKids-Presidents Circle, UKids-East Village, UKids-Guardsman Way or BioKids)
  • Enrolled student parent must be the legal guardian of the child for whom the subsidy will be used
  • Family may not exceed income eligibility
  • Student parent must apply each semester
  • Student parent (or spouse/partner) must attend a Financial Assistance for Child Care Orientation hosted by Student Parent Support Center before application will be processed (Only need to attend once, not every semester)
  • If awarded, student parent (or spouse/partner):
    • Must volunteer in your child's Child Care Center. The amount of volunteer hours will depend on the subsidy amount awarded.  Volunteer hours should be worked on throughout the semester and completed 1 month before the last day of class.
