International Students Health Requirements

Vaccines are required according to age (refer to Incoming Students). International students are required to have a Tuberculin (TB) test within one year of the start of their first semester. A chest x-ray is required if the test is positive. Documentation of previous tests and results must be presented in the English language. Call Medical Records at (336) 285-4946 if there are any questions.

The Alvin V Blount Jr. Student Health Center is now offering the QuantiFERON TB Gold (Blood Test) to determine the presence of Tuberculosis. This test has been recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as being a more accurate test for Tuberculosis Screening.
