Student Counseling Center visits are private. Records do not become part of the student's official University file. Information is not shared between departments unless there is written permission given by the student. Each counselor, therapist, staff member, and student worker is bound by confidentiality. We also make every effort to ensure privacy over the phone and in the office setting.
The Student Counseling Center adheres to HIPPA standards of confidentiality. The Office for Civil Rights enforces the HIPAA Privacy Rule, which protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information; the HIPAA Security Rule, which sets national standards for the security of electronic protected health information; the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, which requires covered entities and business associates to provide notification following a breach of unsecured protected health information; and the confidentiality provisions of the Patient Safety Rule, which protect identifiable information being used to analyze patient safety events and improve patient safety.
