STUDENT ACCIDENT POLICY

As a student enrolled at Angelina College, you will encounter certain risks while your are enrolled in a classroom or laboratory experience, or in a clinical or practicum setting. In the event that you sustain an injury and/or require any medical testing or care, all resulting medical expenses (hospital, ambulance, or physician fees) are your responsibility and not the responsibility of Angelina College or the clinical/practicum site.

It is recommended that you purchase a student/personal health insurance plan (medical/hospitalization) if you are not covered by a group health insurance plan.

ADMISSION TO HEALTH CAREERS PROGRAMS

The college will accept to the limit of its physical and financial resources all who wish to attend and who meet the admissions requirements of each program. The Health Careers Programs, because of excessively high demand, have additional admission requirements and recommend early application; however, the Division does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, age, national origin or disability.

A person must show evidence of good physical and mental health, a medical record with specific health requirements and immunizations are required upon admission, followed by an annual TB test. Each student who registers is required to purchase liability insurance yearly.
