Health Requirements

Health Requirements

Before registering for classes, Tuberculosis (TB) and measles (rubeola) immunization clearances must be submitted.

You may be accepted to Leeward CC without the required clearances, but you will not be able to register for classes until the clearances are received.

Health clearances should be submitted with your UH System Application to our Admissions & Records Office, AD 220 (during renovations located at DH-A 108). Please be sure to write your full name and UH Number on the health clearances.

Tuberculosis Clearance
In compliance with public health regulations, new students must show evidence that they are free of active tuberculosis.

New students must submit a TB clearance not more than one year old prior to the start of the semester. To prevent the spread of tuberculosis, no new student will be allowed to register for courses without proof of a current TB clearance.

The clearance report must state that the skin test or chest x-ray was negative. The testing must be done in the United States. Non-U.S. reports are not accepted.

TB clearances may be obtained from private physicians, medical clinics, or the Campus Health Center at AD 122 (during renovations DH-A 104). Free testing is also available to students entering college at State of Hawaii Tuberculosis Control Program clinics.

Note: TB Clearance policies are subject to change; check with the Admissions Office for the most current information.

New students must provide evidence of immunization against Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR). Students born prior to 1957 are assumed to have acquired natural immunization and will be exempt from providing such evidence.

Evidence is either documented records of two MMR immunizations or blood titer tests proving immunity to measles, mumps and rubella.

Non-Resident International Students
All non-resident international students must demonstrate proof of enrollment in a health and accident insurance program before enrolling in courses. The intent of this requirement is to protect international students against the high cost of unanticipated health care expenses resulting from accidents or illness. See International Programs for details.
