TB Screening/Test

All entering international students are required to submit proof of Tuberculosis Screening to UTSA Health Services (via fax, email or bringing in person) prior to attending Orientation.

How do I submit proof of the Tuberculosis (TB) screening/Test?

It is highly recommended that you take a TB blood test in your home country. Student Health Services accepts the following blood tests:

  • QuantiFERON GOLD
  • T-Spot

TB testing must have been performed within 3 months of the first day of the semester.

If your test result is in a language other than English, please have a translation service translate them into English prior to submission to Student Health Services.

Student Health Services does not accept these tests:

  • ELISA
  • IgG
  • IgM
  • Other forms of rapid testing
  • PPD from other countries

Submit your test results by fax at (210) 458-4151 or by email to StudentHealthServices@utsa.edu.
