Medical Record Release Policy

To assure confidentiality of medical records for our patients, the following requirements must be adhered to:

  1. Currently registered students who need a copy of their MMR immunizations may view and print their MMR immunizations through the SHS portal under the "My Profile" tab.
  2. If requesting release of mental health or HIV-related information the HIPAA form must be completed. If requesting release of other medical records, including immunizations, you will need to fill out and sign an Authorization to Release Medical Records. The request may be emailed to [email protected], faxed to (518) 442-5444 or mailed to University at Albany Student Health Services, Health and Counseling Services Bldg, 1400 Washington Ave, Albany, NY 12222.

    If you arrive at Student Health Services in person requesting release of medical records, please be prepared to show your ID. Your medical records will NOT be released to you without proper identification.

During business times it may take a week or more to process your request.

Please note:Medical records (including immunizations) are only retained for 7 years.
