Calendar for the Academic Year
Important Calendar Dates
*All TB testing for the Spring 2021 semester MUST be scheduled on an individual basis by the requesting student.
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.
There have been many changes to the requirements for clearances for the education department and the procedure to meet those requirements. Each student will need to be aware of their specific requirements. The following is the schedule with times set aside to do tb testing to help students meet the requirements for their degrees. Please note there have been changes by the Health Center in the way we will be providing this service due to the corona virus mitigation recommendations so please read carefully.
ALL TB TESTING AND READS WILL BE DONE IN THE LOWER LEVEL OF THE REC CENTER. ALL STUDENTS MUST ENTER USING THE BACK DOORS BEHIND THE REC FACING THE TENNIS COURTS.
A two-step tb test is required for all Education majors ONCE during their college enrollment. A two-step tb test requires getting 2 separate tb tests a specified time apart.
Ech and Sped are required to have physical exams completed every 2 years.
Rehab will have a one step tb test every two years and a physical every year.
CSD physicals and tb testing are set by your placements.
*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.
