Initial Paperwork


All aspects of your participation in counseling, including the scheduling of appointments and content of counseling sessions, are confidential. Our office maintains a record of the counseling services provided to you that is shared only with you and other counselors in the center. Your file does not become part of your academic transcript and is not shared with any individual, including other AU staff, outside of the counseling office. Information will be released only with your written permission. Our counselors are required by law to notify others who can assist you if we believe that you are in danger of harming yourself or others, or if we suspect abuse of a child or dependent adult.
