Medical records are considered strictly confidential under current state and federal laws with only rare exceptions. They are maintained separately from your academic records and are not released without your written consent.
The limited exceptions include:
- Certain communicable diseases must be reported to the Rhode Island Department of Health.
- If, in our judgment, you are at risk of harming yourself or others.
- If current child or elder abuse is involved.
- If a court of law orders that information be released.
Parents, faculty and other College staff do not have access to your medical information.
