General Information

TB Skin Test
Printable Version Printable Version
Newly admitted students who have been living and/or pursuing their education outside Canada must have documented evidence that they have had a recent TB skin test before undertaking studies at the University of Waterloo. In addition, students who have travelled outside Canada or the USA for four weeks or longer must have similar test results. Upon arrival or while attending the University, students must be prepared to present documentation if requested by a University official. This documentation must include the type of skin test taken, the date performed, and the number of millimeters of induration. Students who are requested to provide documentation but are unable to do so, or students who are unsure about the safety of the needles and/or injection procedures in their previous country of residence, must report to Health Services upon arrival on campus. Where applicable, Health Services will administer the TB skin test at a nominal cost.
