Counseling Center Confidentiality Statement

Counseling Center Confidentiality Statement

As a student, all information you share about yourself will be kept confidential. Only with your written permission will information be released to anyone outside of the Counseling Center except as required by law. Legal exceptions include the following:


• Services to minors

• Clear and imminent danger to you or someone else

• Reasonable expectation that you will engage in dangerous conduct as defined by Oklahoma state statute

• Reasonable suspicion that a child, elder or disabled adult is currently being abused or neglected

• A court order

Counseling Center records do not become part of student educational or medical records. While Counseling Center staff members may consult with a supervisor or with one another, all staff members are ethically and legally bound to treat that information confidentially. This is consistent with best practices and is in compliance with the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, as well as state and federal laws. 


If you are a student in crisis, an on-call counselor is available in University Women 110 or 111 or by phone (405) 466-3400, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., weekdays. After hours counselors are available by phone through a resource named Call SAM at (855) 225-2726 or by contacting the Langston University Police at (405) 466-3366 or 911.
