Confidentiality

Students’ privacy is of the utmost importance. Multnomah University Counseling Center staff do not share personal student mental health information with parents, university employees or other practitioners without a signed written authorization.

Student Health Insurance

Multnomah University seeks to ensure that all students have access to health services and to provide an affordable option.  Therefore, all traditional undergraduate students taking six or more credits and all international students are automatically enrolled in the Multnomah Student Health Insurance plan.  Students who have comparable insurance coverage from another source can waive out of the policy at the beginning of each academic year.  Information regarding health insurance premiums and coverage is available through the Student Life Department and the Student Health Insurance section of the university website.
