Programs of Study
After acceptance to any Health Science program but prior to enrolling in courses, students must provide Southern Union State Community College with the required health care data.
Please do not complete health requirements until you have been accepted into a program.
Clinical agencies mandate that students provide information regarding their current health status (annual physical and essential functions) that may affect the safety of the student or the client in the clinical settings. Clinical agencies also require documentation of specific immunizations and proof that a clear criminal background check and drug screen have been conducted. Various immunizations are required and are subject to change depending on the health care agency requirements. Students who do not have documentation of required immunizations must have blood drawn for a titer to see if they are immune. The student's health requirements must be on file in the Health Sciences Building before the student may register for health sciences courses.*

*Clinical health requirements must be kept current throughout the students' tenure in the program. The documentation will be reviewed initially upon entrance to the program and prior to each semester until program completion. Students may not register for classes if the required clinical documents are not valid and current throughout the entire semester for which they are registering. Clinical documents such as Tb skin tests must not expire during the semester.
**Health records are not required for admission to the program. Do not submit health records with program applications. Please do not complete health requirements until after you have been instructed to do so.
