TB TEST

TB tests are required for all Education courses where you will be working with students in local school districts. If you will be registering for a practicum or field experience course including EDN 101, you are required to get a TB test before you can register for the class. Please note that a state background check is also required. Results of the TB test should be turned in to Stadium 244 to Tara Sokol.

You have a two options for completing this requirement:
Option 1: You can visit your personal physician or a Walgreens/CVS location that has a care center inside. Please be aware that once you visit your physician or the care center, you will need to return a few days later to have your TB test "read".

Option 2: You can complete this requirement at Dyson Wellness Center here on campus if you are actively attending a NCC class for credit. Please note that the days and hours for completing this at Dyson are M-W and Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. This can be charged to your NCC account.

After you complete the test, you must then turn in a signed slip from whomever "read" your test as proof of a negative result to Stadium 244. Information that must be included on this slip are your name, the date, the date on which the test was read, and a signature of the health care professional who read the test. Once you have submitted your negative results to the education office, the lock for the course will be released.

If you have completed a TB test within two years of the start date of the education course, you do not need to repeat this test, but still need to provide our office with proof of a negative result. If Dyson has the results, please be aware that we do not have access to your medical files and therefore, you will need to request a copy and submit to stadium 244.

Please be reminded that BOTH the TB test and the state background check are a requirement for any practicum/field experience Education classes and both must be completed in order to register for the course.  If your TB test expires while you are in the program, you will need to complete another test.
