The staff of Student Counseling Services knows the importance of being able to trust that what you share in counseling is not going to be disclosed to others unless we have your written consent. SCS works within strict ethical and legal guidelines to protect the confidentiality of the students we see. Exceptions include life threatening situations, abuse of minors or the elderly, and court orders.
Please note that Student Counseling Services (SCS) discourages the use of e-mail communication between counselors and clients. Email is not a confidential form of communication, nor is it an appropriate medium for urgent messages. SCS does not provide counseling by e-mail. If you consider your situation to be an emergency, contact SCS during regular business hours or use the after hours emergency contact information.
