H1N1 Flu Advisory

Health Services & Insurance

Despite safety precautions, there are certain risks inherent in any work involving regular contact with mechanical and electrical equipment incidental to instruction in a technical college such as TSTC. Therefore, students are required to adhere to stringent safety precautions and to make provisions for the cost of medical treatment in the event of an accident or emergency illness.

In the event that you suffer an accident or illness, TSTC will assist you in receiving expert medical attention. If an accident or illness warrants emergency treatment in a doctor's office or hospital, you, not TSTC, will bear all related costs. Students enrolling at TSTC are eligible to participate in a low-cost group insurance plan for themselves and their families.

The TSTC Student Insurance Plan is a low-cost, group program which provides financial protection in the event of an accident or illness requiring emergency medical treatment and/or hospitalization. A description of the coverage available is provided at the Macori website.

HIV Policy and Procedures

TSTC does not discriminate against students who are HIV-positive. The College works to increase awareness and educate its students and employees about HIV infection and the AIDS virus with the express purpose of preventing infection and limiting the consequences of infection. Copies of TSTC's policy and procedures relating to HIV infection are available in Associate Dean of the Learning Community. Additional information and referral services for testing are available in Associate Dean of the Learning Community.

Bacterial Meningitis Notification

State law requires that information regarding bacterial meningitis be provided to new college students. Bacterial meningitis is a serious, potentially deadly disease that can progress extremely fast. It is an inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord and can infect the blood. The disease can be treated, but those who survive may develop severe health problems and severe disabilities. Vaccinations that are effective against 70% of the most common types of bacterial meningitis are available and should be considered by those living in close quarters and by college students aged 25 or younger. For more information, contact your health care provider, the local or regional Texas Department of Health Office.
