In most cases, the fact that a student has been referred will only be shared with core members of the BCT, which is comprised of a select group of trained and experienced Loyola administrators. In some cases, a concerned faculty or staff member may inform their supervisor that a referral has been made, to ensure that appropriate steps are being taken to ensure the safety and well-being of the student.

A student’s BCT information is part of a student’s educational record. While the BCT Case Manager, the BCT Chair, and select members of the BCT may have access to the information, it is subject to the privacy protections of FERPA.
