Confidentiality Policy

Confidentiality Policy 116

Supervisory-Educators (Faculty) and CPEI Administration must hold confidential student records, including student applications, evaluations, and reference letters. Student records will not be released without the student’s consent.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, both financial and academic. Certain student records cannot be released without the student’s explicit consent for the student’s protection. However, some directory (membership) information can be released without the student’s consent, such as name, address, email address, phone number, dates of enrollment, student’s current enrollment status, and CPEI/CPED courses completed. However, CPEI/CPED would first seek to obtain the student’s consent.

HIPAA Compliance: CPEI is committed to compliance with the regulations and conditions set forth in the Health Insurance Portability and Availability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). CPEI Staff, Supervisors-Educators, and students agree to keep all PHI (Protected Health Information) that is entrusted to us privately and securely. Information that is unintentionally shared will be reported to the proper authorities immediately.
