Southwest Tech Health Programs are committed to student success!
To ensure the success of our students, we offer the following services to assist our students.
The College Health Records Office is required to produce affiliation reports for students entering all health-related fields, childcare and dental assistance programs. Depending on program requirements, students need to complete an immunization/communicable disease history, TB skin testing history, and documentation of a current physical. These forms must be completed and reviewed by the college health educator for approval.
Costs of the health requirements are the responsibility of the student.
