Confidentiality

According to state laws regarding confidentiality and privacy, the staff cannot release information about a student without the student’s permission. Thus, the staff will not share a student’s concerns with faculty, staff, other students, or family. Some exceptions to confidentiality exist; please ask the staff to clarify the few conditions.

In counseling, the following exceptions to confidentiality may occur:

  • 1. If a client threatens to harm himself/herself.
  • 2. If the psychologist or counselor believes that a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another.
  • 3. If a judge orders testimony or records are subpoened.
  • 4. If the psychologist or counselor believes a child (minor) or vulnerable adult (e.g., elderly or disabled person) is being abused.
