Confidentiality Policy

The Health Office respects and protects student confidentiality. We will not share any student health information with faculty, students, or other third parties without written parent consent. No exceptions will be made for sharing student information except in the following cases:
  • A student informs us of his/her intention to harm him/herself
  • A student informs us of his/her intention to harm another person
  • A student gives reason to believe that he/she might be victim of abuse or neglect
Intervention in these situations is mandated by law and may require the sharing of confidential information to prevent harm and prioritize safety.
