General Health Standards for Specific Programs

General Health Standards

Curriculum students are required to complete an individual student health questionnaire.

Students should be in a sufficient state of health to successfully pursue the program of study chosen. Communicable disease or severe mental illness may prohibit approval to register for classes when health records indicate that attendance would be detrimental to the health and/or safety of the student or others with whom the student may come in contact while pursuing a program of study.

Requirements for Specific Programs of Study

A Student Medical Form (physical examination by a physician) is required for specialized programs of study such as:

  • Associate Degree Nursing
  • Basic Law Enforcement Technology
  • Cardiac and Vascular Sonography
  • Computed Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology
  • Cosmetology
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Medical Assisting

The North Carolina Truck Driver Training School requires a DOT physical examination form.

For these programs, students are required to meet health standards specific to the occupation for which they are preparing. These are generally accepted standards of physical ability to perform the requirements of the program and to engage in educational and clinical experiences in such a way as not to endanger the student, other students, or members of the public including patients, patrons, customers, minors, or other persons with whom the student will come in contact as a part of the educational program.
