International students are required to undergo Tuberculosis (TB) testing within 10 days of arrival on campus. An appointment with NEO’s school nurse will be scheduled immediately and persons with a positive TB result must undergo further screening at the Ottawa County Health Clinic. This may include a chest x-ray. Prophylactic medication and follow-up exams may also be required, as determined by the Ottawa County Health Department.
Students who do not meet this requirement, or if necessary, who do not undergo subsequent screening or follow prescribed treatment regimes may be prohibited from attending classes, will be blocked from registering for the subsequent semester, and will not be allowed to apply for a Social Security card until such time as they are determined to be of no public health risk (e.g. contagious).
