Immunization for tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) dose received on or after 2005

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is required for all students. Date of disease is also accepted, if documentation is provided.

*While not required at this time, we highly recommended HPV and an annual flu shot. 

TB screening requirements

Students from countries identified as high TB risk or who have lived in a high-risk country for more than six months must complete TB screening upon arrival at Oregon State. This screening is available through Student Health Services. In many cases, screening will be included in your new student orientation coordinated by INTO-OSU and OSU International Programs. Testing must be completed within the United States, so please do not pursue advance testing in your country. Instead, expect to complete your TB screening upon arrival at OSU.

Official documentation is required for all vaccines. 

International students whose first dose of measles vaccine was received less than 30 days prior to attendance will have until the beginning of the second term to receive and provide documentation of a second dose.

The required health form is available online at the Patient Portal. You must also submit copies of your official immunization documentation by fax, mail or email prior to arriving at OSU.

If you are unable to access the online forms, please print the International Student Health History Form and submit it by fax or mail to:
