Will my parents or guardians be notified if I need medical help due to alcohol or other drugs?


Federal laws and Yale policy protect your privacy. It is rare for the university to notify parents or guardians; this happens only when grave safety issues arise or when Yale has serious concerns about a student’s health.  Parents/guardians may learn that their children were transported to the emergency room through their health insurance providers.  Students usually decide on their own to talk with parents or other adults in their lives.
