All UAlbany students are assessed for the risk of TB (Tuberculosis) through the Required Health Form. The most common risk for TB is exposure in a TB endemic country, a country known to have a high rate of TB. This includes most Eastern Mediterranean, African, Asian, Central and South American countries.
If you have spent over 4 weeks in any TB endemic country within the past 5 years you must have a TB blood test (QuantiFERON or T-Spot only).
The only exceptions are:
- If who have received a full course of treatment for Tuberculosis with TB medications and you will need to provide medical documentation confirming the start and end dates of treatment and medications prescribed.
- If you had a blood test that reveals a previous positive response (In addition, a chest x-ray must be performed within 6 months prior to your arrival on campus or as soon as possible after a positive test result and a report copy provided, in English with your name and date of birth).
