to complete a health history questionnaire. Students, regardless of age,

a student's visits to SHS without the student's permission. If the student is 18 years of age or older, the University cannot
release information to his/her parents without the student's prior knowledge. Medical information is released only with the
student's written consent or upon court-ordered subpoena.
