Article 11. Physical Examinations. Health Screening Programs.   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Except as hereinafter provided, each campus may establish for regular students a health screening program, including a requirement for a physical examination, as a condition for matriculation or continued attendance. If the parent or guardian of a minor student, or a student who has reached his or her eighteenth birthday, submits in writing a statement that a physical examination is contrary to the religious beliefs of such student, the student shall be exempt from such physical examination other than that required by the campus of students taking courses in student teaching or other teacher-education laboratory in the public schools. Whenever a campus physician has reason to believe that any student is suffering from an infectious or contagious disease that poses a significant health hazard to persons on the campus, such student shall not be permitted to attend at the campus. If admitted students do not comply with any campus health screening policy before arrival on campus, appropriate campus medical personnel are authorized to conduct physical examinations, laboratory tests or radiological examinations, diagnose and treat such students as necessary to ensure compliance with campus health screening requirements prior to registration or enrollment.
