Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire
Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infection that attacks the lungs and sometimes other parts of the body. An individual with active tuberculosis can spread the disease by coughing, sneezing, speaking, laughing and singing; distributing the bacteria in the air to be inhaled by individuals in close proximity.
Highland Community College requires all students enrolled and entering classrooms to complete a tuberculin screening questionnaire. Fill out and submit this form no later than registration day to prevent a drop placed on pre-registered classes.
If the answers to the above questions are "NO" ---- no further testing or action is required.
If the answer is "YES" to ANY of the above questions, Highland Community College requires a health care provider to complete a tuberculosis assessment, which includes TB testing. This assessment may be obtained at the local or any Health Department or physician/health clinic:
HCH Highland Clinic
415 West Main Street
Highland, KS 660635
Students will be dropped from registered courses until this documentation is provided. It is a Kansas state requirement.
Return form to HCC Admissions, 606 West Main, Highland, KS 66035, or fax to 785.442.6106, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to start of the semester classes.
