Go to “My Forms” to read and complete the forms. If you do not yet have an S&T username and password, you must complete the forms once you arrive to the U.S. and have obtained your username and password.

If you can answer “yes” to any of the statements on the TB screening form on the patient portal, further TB evaluation is required.
If you need additional screening or testing, a secure message will be sent to your patient portal with additional information.
If you have lived in any of the following countries within the last 5 years for 2 months or more, a tuberculosis blood test is required to determine if you have latent TB. A skin tuberculin or PPD test is not sufficient.
The TB blood test is an interferon-gamma release assay or IGRA blood test. Two common test names for this are Quantiferon Gold or T-Spot. If you have this blood test done in your home country, upload the result to the patient portal or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tuberculosis testing requirements can vary for the following risk factors: working in health care; being a resident, employee, or volunteer in a high-risk setting; if you have been considered medically underserved, low-income, abusing drugs or alcohol; or if you have had contact with a person with active tuberculosis disease.
If you have had a positive TB blood or skin test in your home country, you will need to have a chest x-ray completed within 6 months of your arrival to the US. This can be completed in your home country or through Student Health Services after your arrival. If a chest x-ray is completed in your home country, you will need to submit a copy of the report.
