HIPAA and Advising

An optional HIPAA training is available to academic advisors.  The Fall 2020 semester has brought new challenges regarding information sharing, and hopefully this training serves as a reminder of what is appropriate to share and what should be kept confidential.  Advisors should have received an invitation to the EverFi training module on 12/1.   A timeline for training has been set from 12/1/20 to 1/31/21.  It takes about an hour to complete the full module.

Below is a summary of the most relevant points from the training should you choose not to complete the module.  You will also find a visual comparing HIPAA and FERPA from the CDC.
