Calendar for the Academic Year
Important Calendar Dates
It is strongly suggested that all medical exams and TB testing be done at the CUP Health Center in Becht Hall. This is the best way to insure all data is accurately reported so that the Office of Field Services can record your medical clearance is completed. Also, TB testing will require two office visits (one to administer the test and a second to read the results), much easier to accomplish if done on campus. However you may choose to have your medical clearance done by your personal physician. If you choose to not utilize the University Health Center follow directions exactly as found under Clearances – Medical Clearances on the Office of Field Services Webpage.Click here for the Health Center Physical Schedule
Please contact the Health Center with any scheduling questions regarding the dates set aside for ECH, Mid-level, Secondary BLOCKS, CSD and Rehab Science Physicals and TB testing.
