The privacy and confidentiality of your records is protected by law. Records are not released to third parties without a signed, written release of information.

Records are kept on site at Student Health until 3 years after you graduate or leave the institution at which time they are moved to a secure storage facility until they are ready for destruction. Records may be destroyed 7 years after graduation/separation under NYS law.
