In addition to submitting a selective admission application, applicants must:
The following information is in accordance to the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation Community Standards for Drug Screening, Background Checks and Immunizations (PDF will open in a new window) as of January 1, 2013.
The Texas Administrative Code (TAC) and Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation requires all students in health related programs to be immunized prior to enrollment in classes where patient contact is a component.
Students are required to have health insurance when doing clinical coursework. TCC does not offer college sponsored student health insurance. The following companies offer student insurance, but are not endorsed by TCC.
All of the Health Sciences Programs, with the exception of Long Term Care Administration, require you to have a current Texas Healthcare Provider CPR Certification. TCC Northeast Campus Continuing Education (817-515-6502) and the American Red Cross (817-336-8710) offer this certification training.
After you have been accepted into the program, but before you begin your clinicals, you must undergo and pass a criminal background check and drug screening. These screenings will be administered through the College and will be at your expense. There are no exceptions.
