HIPAA VS FERPA Knowing the difference can help if there is a medical emergency.
When your son/daughter sign a UIPAA compliant consent for release of information, it gives our facility the student's permission to share protected health information with parents. Without it, our Student Health and Counseling Center cannot provide you with any information in regards to medical, counseling or billing items in regards to your student.

The FERPA consent form that parents sign at the Bursar's Office IS NOT a medical consent form.
