What about confidentiality?

The Health Center follows the HIPPA guidelines. It is against the law for employees or student worker staff to discuss or release your medical information without your written consent.

All medical and personal counseling records are confidential with legal restraints. The records are NOT part of the student's academic records. Information will not be released without the student's consent.
