When to Make a Referral
To help you identify those students who may need support and professional assistance, learn the signs and symptoms of distress.
The cornerstone of the counseling relationship.
Students need a sense of privacy and protection to feel comfortable enough to open up about their issues and concerns. Campus Counseling services are free and confidential to the extent of the law. Counseling records are considered separate from academic records.
However, there are exceptions:
- If the student has a plan to kill him/herself.
- If the student has a plan to kill someone else.
- The student has abused a child or elder.
- There is a legal subpoena for the counselor to testify at court.
- The student provides written consent that information can be released to a third party.
