Students/Alumni:  Here's What You Can Reasonably Expect From Your Career Center...

1. Confidentiality.  Career Center staff members are expected to exercise sound judgment and fairness in maintaining the confidentiality of student information, regardless of the source, including written records, reports, and computer data bases. Disclosure of student information outside the college/university should only be made with your prior consent unless health and safety considerations necessitate the distribution of such information.

2. Freedom of choice.  You're entitled to be assisted by the Career Center staff in developing a career plan and making career decisions without having staff members' biases or personal values imposed upon you.

3. Access to all services and events.  Career centers may charge students/alumni for registering or taking part in certain services or events. Such fees should be sufficiently nominal so as not to hinder you from participating.

4. Access to career information.  All students/alumni, regardless of personal or educational background, should be provided by Career Center staff members with equal and full access to information on career opportunities and types of employing organizations. Career Center staff members are also expected to inform you how and where to obtain information which may influence your decisions about an employing organization.

5. Testing information.  Career Center staff members should inform you of the availability of testing, the purpose of the tests, and the disclosure policies regarding test results.
