The Health Services professional staff conforms to standard professional, ethical and state-mandated procedures of confidentiality. Maintenance of records is in accordance with professional and legal guidelines. The student may authorize the release of confidential information to others by signing a standard release form available at Health Services.
Exceptions to the standard procedures of confidentiality occur when a student is assessed to be a danger to him/herself or others, when records are subpoenaed, or in reporting abuse (e.g., abuse or neglect of a minor) as required by law. In such cases, the student would be informed, if possible, and only the necessary information would be released.
