Tennessee Technological University has a student health service which provides medical services for minor illnesses or injuries for any student enrolled at the University on an appointment basis during hours of operation. The health service staff includes nurses, nurse practitioner, physician, and pharmacist who plan and implement care for students during daytime hours Monday through Friday. The only charge made to a student is for medications, treatments, supplies, or laboratory work.
The student is responsible for expenses incurred for ambulance service, calls at a local physician’s office, emergency services, and other services provided at Cookeville Regional Medical Center.
You are required to submit a health history and official record of immunization prior to enrolling. These are proof of two measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines, proof of having the chicken pox disease, a positive titer, or proof of two varicella vaccines. Proof of a Tuberculosis skin test (or PPD) that has been done within 12 months of school enrollment is needed for international students. Certain programs may have additional requirements. It is recommended that students also have meningitis and hepatitis B vaccine.
