Family Educational Record and Privacy Act (FERPA)
All office visits in Student Health are confidential and protected by the Family Educational Record and Privacy Act (FERPA). Only Student Health providers and staff have access to office visit notes. No other access is granted without the patient’s written permission.
If the patient chooses to receive laboratory or radiology services on campus or if he or she sees a provider on campus outside of Student Health, the information will be protected by HIPAA and managed in the same manner as regular patients.
