All Health Center records are private and confidential. The Health Center has prepared a Privacy Notice reviewing the confidentiality of personal health information for students and non-students. A copy of the Privacy Notice is available at the Health Center or you may click on the links below.
The medical records of students attending Baylor University fall under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, FERPA, guidelines. FERPA establishes the guidelines and allows organizations that fall under the guidelines the right to choose to exceed those guidelines. In order to protect the privacy of our students, Baylor University has chosen to establish the following policy:
Medical releases may be requested for a specific medical event through a medical release form signed by the patient.
In the case of a medical emergency in which the patient is unable to give written or verbal permission for the release of medical information, the attending physician may contact the parents/guardians of the patient.
The policy does not provide an opportunity to request a universal or specific medical condition release of medical information.
