Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
All office visits in Student Health Services are confidential and protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Only Student Health Services 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 sees an on-campus provider outside Student Health, the information will be protected by HIPAA and managed in the same manner as for regular patients.
