A statement from the doctor shall be submitted verifying the condition of pregnancy and indicating any limits to be placed on the student's program. If possible, arrangements for the resumption of education will be worked out when she is required to leave.

Appropriate referral procedures should be offered to the parents and to the girl and, if possible, to the prospective father, if a student of this Corporation.
