Does the Health Center do TB tests? If so how much do they cost?

The Student Health Center does TB (PPD) testing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. There is no charge for the test(except during the summer). Patients are required to return for a “reading” of their PPD test 48-72 hours after the test is placed. If a patient fails to return, they will be charged $10 to have the test repeated.The typical TB screening is a two -step process, plan ahead as you will have to return in 24-72 hours to have the test read by one of our nurses.

Are TB tests available every day?

No. Only on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  The information applies to academic year only. During the summer we will only be able to do TB tests on Mondays and Tuesdays between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Are TB tests available in the summer?

Yes. Students must come on Monday or Tuesday. The typical TB screening is a two -step process, plan ahead as you will have to return in 24-72 hours to have the test read by one of our nurses.
