Tuberculosis (TB) Screening
For International students and students returning from Study Abroad programs.
All international students beginning studies at Clarke and students returning from study abroad programs are required to come to the Health Service office within the first month they arrive on campus of the current semester.
Health Service staff will administer a TB screening questionnaire. During your TB screening you will be asked about your health history and if you are having any current symptoms.
- If you have had TB infection-medical records and date of diagnosis
- Details of any TB treatment you have received
- Results of past TB tests (skin or blood)
- Chest x-ray results
- Immunization records
This screening will determine if a TST (tuberculin skin test) or T-SPOT blood test is necessary.
