Op5.04-2 Confidentiality

All communication within the Counseling Center is confidential. No record of counseling is contained in any academic, educational, or job placement file. Information regarding the content of interviews or the results of testing counseling sessions or client’s clinical file can be released only with the written permission of the client. The exceptions to this policy are:

  1. when the information relates to clear and imminent danger to an individual or group
  2. when state law requires the reporting of information (threats of violence, child/elder abuse or neglect)
  3. when the consent of a parent/guardian is required to provide services to a minor student or an adult student under legal guardianship
  4. when information is requested by court order.

Any disclosure in these situations will be made to an appropriate authority, and will be limited to material directly pertinent to the issue involved.
