Information for Parents
Students that seek medical treatment at the Wellness Center have the option of signing a consent form allowing the Wellness Center providers to discuss medical care related issues with the students’ parents or legal guardians. If the consent is not signed, providers will not release any information to 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.
Additionally, 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.
