Upon matriculation, students have the option of signing a consent form allowing Student Health Center providers to discuss care related issues with the students’ parents or legal guardians. In general, if the consent is signed, providers will discuss care issues with parents or legal guardians. If the consent is not signed, providers will explain this to the parent or legal guardian and refer the parent or guardian back to the student. Students may allow or revoke consent to speak with parents or legal guardians at any time.
If the visit is sensitive in nature, the provider will not discuss the issue with a parent or legal guardian without explicit permission from the student.
