Confidentiality and Consultations

As required by law and professional codes of ethics, all communication between a counselor and a client is confidential. Once a student becomes a Counseling Center client, we cannot discuss her/his situation, or even acknowledge the fact that the student presented at the Center without the consent of the student. If you request acknowledgement of a referral, we will request the student's written permission. However, we will be unable to provide such information if the student has denied permission.

The limits of confidentiality do not preclude the staff at the Counseling Center from speaking with you regarding your concerns about a student. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your concerns and explore possible options.

The Counseling Center professional staff members look forward to working with you to promote the academic success and personal development of all Tennessee Tech University students.
