Information shared at the Student Counseling Center is confidential per Florida law, kept separate from students’ academic records, and will not be disclosed to anyone outside of the SCC without your written permission first, except when:

1) The clinician suspects that you are an imminent danger to yourself or others

2) The clinician has reasonable suspicion of abuse, neglect, or threat of harm to a child, elderly person, or other vulnerable adult

3) There is a threat to campus safety

4) A judge orders the release of your records, or your records are otherwise subject to a court order or other legal process requiring disclosure

To further protect your confidentiality, SCC staff members will not acknowledge that they are familiar with you when outside the Center, unless you acknowledge them first. If you have any questions about our confidentiality policy, please contact our office.
