Tuberculosis Screening

All incoming ISP students are required to complete the TB risk screening form upon arrival at De Anza College. You can find this form and submit it online by visiting the Student Health Portal. Paper copies of the old TB screening forms are no longer accepted.

Tuberculosis screening can be conducted at our Student Health Services office. In many cases, TB risk assessment screening will be included in your new student orientation coordinated by the International Student Programs office.

Students who are identified as higher risk for TB infection should undergo a blood testing (IGRA- QuantiFERON-TB Gold blood test) within the United States, so please do not pursue advanced testing in your country. Instead, expect to complete your TB risk screening upon arrival at De Anza College.

A chest X-ray is NOT ACCEPTABLE as a substitute for a TB risk screening.

Students with a positive TB test result must undergo chest radiography and medical exam. If any X-ray changes or signs and symptoms of active TB are identified, active TB disease must be excluded.

Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)

Students must show proof of immunity to MMR as documented by evidence of positive blood test ("titer") showing protective antibodies to all three diseases. You must submit a copy of the official lab report through the Student Health Portal.
