CONFIDENTIALITY

Student Health Services maintains the privacy and security of all student health records as mandated by federal and state law.

 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) applies to educational agencies and institutions that receive federal funds under any program administered by the Secretary of Education.

 

These laws generally require prior written consent from the student before an educational agency or institution may disclose personally identifiable information from the student?s education or health records.

 

The identity of those using Student Health Services, as well as medical

     information is confidential. However, there are three exceptions:


1. When a patient signs an Authorization for Release of Health

          Information giving the medical provider permission to discuss the

          visit with designated party or parties, usually parents.
2. If the medical provider determines there is a clear and imminent

          danger to the patient and/or society.

      3. If a Health Sciences student does not meet immunization

          requirements for clinical practice, their school will be notified.
