Health Requirements

Some programs require students to have certain medical and health criteria such as a completed Communicable Disease Surveillance (CDS) Form.

Information will be mailed with your registration package. Students must submit completed forms by the deadline indicated and meet all medical criteria. These are necessary for clinical/field placement. Failure to meet criteria could affect the ability to proceed in the program.

In addition, some health programs may refer to standard requisite skills and abilities (ex. the ability to perform repetitive lifting tasks).

For more information regarding Communicable Disease Surveillance (CDS) requirements and to access the CDS forms, please visit the Niagara College Health Centre website at

Important: Please check the “Admission Requirements” and/or “Additional Program Requirements” section(s) of your program’s webpage on the Niagara College website for specific health requirements.
