Confidentiality

In general, everything you discuss in the Student Counseling Services will be held in strict confidence. Your psychologist or counselor will not even acknowledge to an outside person that you are currently seeking counseling. Student Counseling Services records are confidential according to Nebraska state law and the American Psychological Association Code of Ethics. E-mail is never fully confidential; therefore, in the interest of your own privacy the Student Counseling Services requests that you please refrain from using e-mail to communicate with your psychologist or counselor about personal matters. If you contact your clinician by e-mail, then he or she will often respond via telephone communication. Never use e-mail to communicate an urgent or crisis message.

Disclosure of the information you provide may be made by the Student Counseling Services Office if:

  • You sign a written request to have information released;
  • Your psychologist or counselor believes that you present a danger to yourself or to others;
  • Your psychologist or counselor has reasonable suspicion of abuse or neglect of a child or a vulnerable adult;
  • The life or safety of an identified or readily identifiable third person is endangered or threatened; or
  • Otherwise required or permitted by law.


Please speak with your your psychologist or counselor to receive more information.
