Notice of Confidentiality

All of the records maintained solely for counseling services are confidential and are kept in a secured location. Information shall be disclosed to third parties only with the written consent of the student. Exceptions to confidentiality exist when the counselor perceives the client to be acutely suicidal or homicidal, and when led to believe that a child or elderly person who is unable to fend for themselves is being neglected or abused. Students who are under 18 may also have their records accessed by their parents if they make a written request.
