  • Confidentiality

    Because counseling is a personal matter, the Counseling and Wellness Center maintains confidentiality to the limits provided by the law. No record of counseling is contained in any academic, educational or job placement file, and information about counseling is only released with the student's written permission. The only exception would be in cases mandated by law, such as imminent danger to self or others, abuse of children, the elderly. or the disabled, or a court subpoena.
