Confidentiality & What to Expect

The Carlos L. González Counseling Center maintains a strict policy on confidentiality. All student information and sessions are private and confidential. Nothing is entered in the student’s academic record or shared without the student’s signed consent. Staff members, however, may disclose information deemed necessary in cases of harm to self or others, evidence of child abuse/ neglect, or upon court order.
