Part II Tuberculosis Risk Questionnaire
- All students must answer the Tuberculosis Risk Questionnaire.
- If “yes” to any part of #6, the student must provide proof of having a PPD skin test or quantiferon/T-spot blood test within the last 6 months. PPD skin testing and blood testing is available to all registered students by appointment for a small fee. Call Health Services to make an appointment at (203) 392-6300.

- Write down any life-threatening allergies including those to foods and medications.

Part IV: Submitting a Completed Form
Log into the Medicat Health Portal using your banner ID and password. Follow instructions to upload data and allow 24-48 hours for processing.
We encourage students to promptly return any missed calls from Health Services and to check their SCSU email frequently for any outstanding health requirements. Once your health form has been submitted and processed you will receive an email communication verifying compliance. Any Health Services communications will then be sent via secure message through the Medicat Health Portal.
Points to Remember
- Form must be signed. Students under 18 require a signature from a parent or legal guardian. Please note: Health Services is not authorized to provide medical care to minors under the age of 18 without parental or legal guardian signature.
- No physical exam or health assessment required. Students may print and complete the form by referencing the dates on their immunization records. Attach a copy of immunization records when submitting your form.
- Form is required for full-time or matriculating students. Connecticut State Statute, Sec. 10a-155, requires students to submit a Connecticut State University Health Form providing proof of adequate immunization or screening against Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella and Tuberculosis. Non-matriculating students are not required to submit a health form.
- If unable to provide record student may have lab bloodwork drawn to prove immunity. Lab reports must be submitted with health form. Please contact the students' primary care or pediatrician's office to request lab services. Student Health Services does not provide immunizations. To find immunization clinics near you go to vaccinefinder.org
- Immunization records are not required for those with valid medical or religious exemptions. Appropriate documentation must be submitted prior to due date. Requests may need approval by the Medical Director. Students requesting exemption are still required to submit a signed health form providing documentation of having completed the Tuberculosis Risk Questionnaire and listing emergency contact information. Download and complete the Medical Exemption Form (pdf).
