Confidentiality

Counseling often deals with very personal and private issues. No information regarding your visit(s) will be divulged to any person(s) or agencies, parents, or faculty, without your written permission specifying what may be disclosed; nor will any record of your visit(s) exist within your official academic transcripts or medical records. The exceptions to confidentiality are:

• When the student poses a threat of serious harm to self or others,

• when there is reasonable suspicion of abuse of a child or elderly person, or

• when there is a court order.
