Tuberculosis Assessment Policy

Individuals seeking international student admission are required to have tuberculosis screening upon arrival at Hutchinson Community College. International students must present the results of a tuberculosis skin test completed in the United States within the last twelve months, or be tested at a college approved clinic. If the results of a TB skin test are positive, the applicant must complete a TB blood test at a clinic designated by the college.

Documentation must be presented for prior treatment for latent or active tuberculosis. Chest X-Rays are required for any student with a positive TB blood test or who has been treated for latent or active tuberculosis.

To avoid suspension of enrollment, testing must be completed within ten days of the start of the semester. In the event that testing is completed at college approved facilities, fees will be added to the student's account to cover all testing charges.
