Students are developing adults who are learning to make their own health decisions. As such, it is important that we offer the opportunity for students to make these decisions with assurance that their confidentiality will be respected.
All services provided to students and communication with clinicians are confidential. With a student’s permission, we will share health information with families, friends or other health care providers. This permission is encounter specific; we generally do not permit blanket permission to be signed for an extended period of time. The University Health Center is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations. Please see our Notice of Privacy Practices (link) for details regarding privacy and confidentiality.
