You will be notified if additional items are needed for clearance. Note: TB Test results must be dated within 1 year of UC entry.

Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire

All incoming students must complete a five question Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire which is located on the Clearances tab in your MyHealth portal. The screening questionnaire will determine whether you are high risk and should receive a Tuberculosis Test.

Tuberculosis Testing

Due to the incidence of Tuberculosis in certain countries some students will not have the option to complete the five question Tuberculosis Questionnaire, this is because there are countries that have higher incidence of tuberculosis. These students are required to complete a TB Skin Test or TB Spot Test, the date of the test needs to be within one year of entry to UCSB.

If the test is positive a Chest X-ray will be required to show no sign of active tuberculosis infection.


Steps to Complete Your TB Test

  1. Download the TB Health Assessment Form and take it to your Primary Care Provider (PCP). Incomplete forms will not be accepted and you will NOT be cleared.
  2. Once any additional testing is complete and your doctor has determined you are free of active TB, your doctor must sign the TB Health Assessment Form. The completed/signed form must be returned online, by fax, or by email.
