Tuberculosis (TB) Testing Requirement

You are required to have a tuberculosis test if one of the following applies to you:

All tests must be administered by a NC State University acceptable medical facility within the 12 months preceding the first day of classes. Testing can be in the form of a PPD (Tuberculin test) or blood test (Interferon Gamma Release Assay, “IGRA”). PPD readings must be stated in mm in-duration. A “nil” or “negative” result is not acceptable.

We do not accept the results of PPD tests or chest x-rays completed in medical facilities outside the United States. You may wait and have these test(s) done after you arrive at NC State University. Student Health Services can perform a blood test (IGRA) to detect a tuberculosis bacterial infection. Blood Tests outside of the United States are accepted if completed in the past 12 months. If you receive this test at the Student Health Center, and have health insurance coverage under the University- Sponsored Health Insurance Plan, your health insurance policy will cover the cost of the test if given after the effective insurance date. If you need this test done please call (919)-515-2563 to make an appointment once you are on campus.
