Albion College Counseling Services Intake Form
Albion College Counseling Services Intake Form
During this first session, you and your counselor will determine how to best meet your individual needs. Counseling assignments are made on the basis of the immediacy of need and service availability. When a student must be seen immediately, his/her assignment to a counselor is given priority. The availability of counseling services is somewhat limited. This means there may be a wait before you begin regular counseling sessions. If you have any questions about your counselor, please discuss them during your assessment session.</p
Confidentiality of Medical Records
Health care records are maintained in files separate from the student's academic files and cannot be accessed by faculty, staff, administration, parents or other students.
Protected Health Information housed in Student Health Services is completely confidential. Students must sign a written authorization to release Protected Health Information to anyone, including faculty and family members. Protected Health Information may also be released for medical treatment, medical services, and as required by law.
Student Health Services welcomes your interest and contact. We also value your privacy. Please consider the following information prior to sending e-mail:
E-mail is not an appropriate medium for questions regarding individual, private, personal health. It is most appropriate for getting general information regarding services, resources or other campus information. We cannot guarantee that the contents of an e-mail message will remain confidential. While we will do our best to keep communication private, e-mail usage can be monitored and others may read the content of your personal messages.
