Polices & Confidentiality

Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) documents are SEPARATE from a student’s academic/educational records.  ONLY CAPS staff has access to them.  CAPS will maintain and retain such records in a confidential manner, except in specific situations where disclosure of information is ethically or legally required (see Services, Policies, & Confidentiality below for additional information).  The CAPS Office will retain a student’s record(s) in accordance with legal and ethical standards.  Aside from the typical limits of confidentiality, a student’s clinical records can ONLY be disclosed if an “Authorization to Release Information” form (available at the CAPS Office) is completed by the student.
