Student Health Services at The College of New Jersey is committed to upholding the highest standards regarding the confidentiality of health records. Student Health Services retains medical records for 10 years after a student leaves The College of New Jersey.
To request a copy of your medical record, print out the Authorization for Release of Health Information, complete the form and return it to our office. Be very specific about what you want released. Sign (handwritten) and date the form to avoid delays in processing your request. Note that this request is specific to Student Health Services and therefore will not contain records you may have in Planned Parenthood, Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS), Alcohol and Drug Education Program, Anti-Violence Initiatives, Athletics or any other office on campus (see below for more information). Allow 7 business days for retrieval of records from off-campus storage and processing of request. If picking up your records in-person, bring your Driver’s License with photo ID so that we can verify your identity.
Email the Authorization for Release of Health Information to email@example.com or mail to:

The Authorization for Release of Health Information cannot be used to release health information relating to future medical care nor can it be used to release medical records from an entity other than TCNJ Student Health Services. Current Student Health Services’ patients may only use this form to request copies of PAST medical or immunization records.
Should a patient 18 years of age and older wish to release specific medical information to a third party such as a parent or family member, they should inform their Student Health Services’ health care provider during or immediately after their visit. As each visit is treated individually, the patient must inform their health care provider of their wishes at each visit.
