Health Screening


The University of Cincinnati requires that all students new to the University to have a health screening at University Health Services (UHS). You will receive a letter and immunization record sheet in the same pre-arrival packet that contains your I-20 / DS-2019. Please read the letter and have your healthcare provider complete the form.

Once you have completed your pre-arrival checklist in iBearcatsGlobal, you will receive an appointment date for your health screening. The health screening will include a test to screen for tuberculosis (TB). Based on your TB test results, a chest x-ray may be required and will be done at no charge to you. Chest x-rays from other countries cannot be accepted.


What happens if I do not complete the health screening?

Failure to complete the health screening upon arrival will result in notification to the Registrar’s office and possible cancellation of your classes for the subsequent semester. If your classes are cancelled, you will be in violation of your immigration status.
