Confidentiality matters to you and to us.

We value your privacy. What you reveal in counseling during your sessions with your counselor at Wingate University stays confidential. But there are a few, crucial exceptions. Information you share will not be released without your permission, except:

  • In your counselor’s opinion, you present direct and foreseeable harm to yourself or others.
  • We are ordered by a court of law to release information.
  • You disclose actual or possible child abuse/neglect or elder abuse/neglect.

Further exceptions may apply if:

  • You are 17 years old or younger.

Don’t be shy. Ask your counselor about confidentiality. It will set your mind at ease.
