Medical Records

If a student needs to have his/her records released, Student Health Services, as required by law, must obtain a written release, which allows SHS to transfer the student’s record. A separate release is required for each transfer. Student Health Services maintains Student Health Information for the mandatory 10 years as outlined by the Texas A&M University policy (Item number 07.200.20, 2012). As a patient, a student is entitled to a copy of his/her records; however, the records are the property of Student Health Services and guidelines are in place to protect the student’s information.

Obtaining the Record

Students can download a Medical Records Release Form and submit the completed form to SHS.

Students may mail in the form and payment, fax the form and be contacted by a SHS staff member for payment, or complete the form and pay in person. Please allow up to 14 days for processing. The address for all these methods is listed below:
