This is a 2-step testing process, requiring one day for the test and one day for reading the results.

Many Freshmen students have a HOLD on their Spring 2014 registration status due to not having a current TB test.  To see if you need TB clearance, check MyUH Portal under "STAR Degree Check" to see if you have a HOLD (in red letters) on your "Academic Pathway" tab.   Those who have a HOLD on their registration account will not be able to register for Spring classes beginning November 4-8.

TB testing is sponsored by the Nursing Department in coordination with the Wai`ale`ale Program and Kipaipai First Year Initiative Program. KCC Nursing students will be administering the TB test under the supervision of the Campus Wellness Center.
