Confidentiality

We operate our department in a respectful and professional manner. The mental health counseling one receives here is private and confidential, within the limits of the law. These limits include cases of life-threatening emergencies, hospitalization and imminent danger to one's self or others. No information is released outside of the Counseling Center without explicit permission from the student, unless the student communicates verbally or in written form that he or she is a danger to one's self or others. A student may request in writing that the Counseling Center staff release specific information about his or her counseling to persons he or she designates. In some circumstances, at the discretion of the Director, the student's family may be notified if hospitalization is required.For further information on issues of confidentiality and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act please see the Student Handbook.
