Immunization Requirements Prior to Attending OSU
All incoming international students must submit health forms and provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. This information is required by law for students to attend OSU and failure to provide this information will result in a registration hold. The required forms may be completed online at the Patient Portal. [If you are unable to access the online forms, you may also print the International Health History Form (PDF) and submit it by mail or fax.]
TB Screening Requirements
Students from countries identified as high TB risk are required to complete TB screening upon arrival at Oregon State. Students from exempt countries who have lived in a high-risk country for more than six (6) months are recommended to complete a TB screening as well. 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.
Fees for Services
If you become ill or injured during your academic career or have questions about your health, please call Student Health Services to make an appointment. Most routine office visits are available at no charge to you. These visits are paid for by the OSU Health Fee that you pay with tuition each term. Fees are often charged for additional services such as lab tests, X rays, prescriptions, massage and physical therapy. Visit Most Common Fees for current fee information.
Language Translation Services
Translation service is available at the clinic for more than 170 languages. Clinicians access the translation line by way of speaker phone or conference call. The service is free and confidential.
All international students who are registered for at least 1 credit hour in Fall, Winter and/or Spring terms will be automatically charged for the OSU International Health Insurance. If a student has other insurance, he/she may submit a waiver and a summary of the insurance for approval no later than the last published date of open enrollment. If approved, the charge will be removed. For more information, see International Student Insurance Plan.
OSU places high priority on preventing the spread of infectious diseases. To promote the health and well-being of the campus community, SHS offers preventive information on these diseases, as well as supplying any immunizations that are available for specific diseases.
Sexually Transmitted Infections
STIs are sexually transmitted infections that affect people of all ages, backgrounds, and from all walks of life. In the United States alone there are about 19 million new cases each year, about half of which occur among young people ages 15-24 years. Visit STIs and HIV for more information.

Student Health Services has an electronic medical record system which provides faster access to patient information and better communication with pharmacies regarding prescriptions. We have also developed a secure Patient Web Portal that allows you to electronically communicate confidentially with providers and submit the required health and immunization forms online.
If you have any chronic medical conditions or have ongoing prescription needs, we encourage you to make an appointment with a primary care provider early in your academic career. Prior medical records are often helpful in transitioning your ongoing medical care to SHS while you are at the university. You should request that your current medical provider fax a copy of your pertinent records to: 541-737-9665. Alternatively, the records can be mailed to Oregon State University Student Health Services, Attn: Medical Records Department, 201 Plageman, Corvallis, OR 97331.
