If you have any questions see below for our frequently asked questions for the Tuberculosis Requirement:

Q. When must I submit my online Immunization Record/TB screening?

A: You must complete the Tuberculosis Risk Screening process and enter your vaccine immunization information prior to registering for classes. There might be a hold on your registration until you have completed ALL steps of this process.

Q: What does the Tuberculosis (TB) clearance process look like?

A: The 1st step in this requirement is to complete a Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire via the Student Health Gateway.

If your TB Risk Screening shows you to have no risks factors for TB, you should expect to receive a secure message within 7 business days confirming you are compliant with this requirement.

“If your TB Risk Screening shows you to be at higher risk, you will need to have further testing completed. Download the TB Health Assessment Form and take it to your Primary Care Provider (PCP). Once any additional testing is complete and your doctor has determined you are free of active TB, your doctor must complete and sign the TB Health Assessment Form. The completed/signed form must be returned in any of the following ways:
