Confidentiality is respected to the limits allowed by law. The SCS makes no record of your visits on academic transcripts or placement files. All records at our office are strictly confidential as protected by law and professional ethics. They are set apart from all other records at the University and are not released to any other person or agency within or outside the University without the client's written consent, except as described by law. In the rare event you or others are in real danger, police or medical staff may be contacted to keep you, your friends, and your family safe.
All staff members subscribe to the ethical guidelines established by the Texas Board of Examiner's of Psychologists and Texas State Board of Examiner's of Professional Counselor's, and Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners. As a client, you will be informed of the legal limits of confidentiality.
