The Center for Counseling is dedicated to providing quality counseling services to students of Asbury University. It is the intention of the Center to protect your confidential information as required by law and in keeping with your rights. Our standards are based on Kentucky’s law of informed consent.
All information is private and will not be shared with anyone beyond the Center for Counseling staff. There may be times when a student is receiving services from both the Center for Counseling and Student Health Services. Information may be disclosed between these two offices under the same State statutes.
No information, including the fact that you are receiving counseling, will be shared with relatives, professors, or university authorities without your written permission. The only exceptions are:
Occasionally, situations arise which would interfere with an effective professional counseling relationship such as having a counselor as a current professor or the counselor having previous information about you from another source such as family or friends. In these cases, you will be assigned to a different counselor to protect your privacy and information will not be shared with the counselor with whom you have outside contact.
If you have further questions about confidentiality, please call the Center for Counseling at (859) 858-3511, x2277.
