The required health form may be completed online at the Patient Portal. In addition to the online health form 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, you may print the International Student Health History Form (PDF) and submit it by fax or mail.]

TB Screening Requirements
Students from countries identified as high TB risk or who have lived in a high-risk country for more than six (6) months are required to complete TB screening upon arrival at Oregon State. The TB screening will be available through OSU Student Health Services. In many cases, TB screening will be included in the new student orientation schedules as coordinated by INTO-OSU and OSU International Programs. The testing must be completed within the United States, so please do not pursue advance testing in your country prior to your arrival. If you are from one of the high-risk countries, please expect to complete your TB screening upon arrival at OSU.
