The Health Services office collaborates with the Center for Global Engagement to collect, store, and monitor health requirements for all students. Health Services is a valuable student resource for medical services and health information.

New international students are required to provide specific immunization dates and documents, and a TB Screening Questionnaire. In certain situations, students may need to provide evidence of a Tuberculosis Screening bloodtest (Q-Gold). All students are also required to provide a health history (not a physical examination). Please see the link below for specific information on how to complete this in the Health Services Student Portal.

Please submit the requirements using the Health Services International Immunization Checklist through the Health Services student portal.

Health Services Portal

International Student Health Requirements:

  1. Submit the international student health history online via the Student Health Services Portal in DORI.
  2. Provide the DATES of required immunizations:
    Two doses of Measles and Mumps with one dose of Rubella or two MMR vaccine dates.
  3. Completion of the Annual Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire. This form will need to be completed every year to prevent a registration hold from being placed on the account.
    1. Upon staff review of the Annual TB Screening questionnaire, students may need to provide proof of TUBERCULOSIS INFECTION TESTING via Q-Gold. If receiving the test prior to arrival in the United States, it must be completed no earlier than 4 weeks of arrival into the United States.
    2. If you choose to be tested in the United States upon arrival, the only accepted tuberculosis screening test is the Quantiferon Gold (Q-Gold) blood test.
  4. MENINGOCOCCAL ACWY VACCINE date (on or after the 16th birthday).

Annual form for returning international students

The Annual Tuberculosis Questionnaire form is required to be completed each year. This form must be completed annually and then uploaded to the Health Services Student Portal.

NOTE: ANY medical records brought from your country MUST be translated into English.

Failure to comply with Health Services will affect your immigration status. Students who do not meet with Health Services will have a hold on their registration. Students unable to register will violate their student status since they must be registered each semester to maintain F-1 status.

Students are strongly encouraged to purchase the Duquesne University Student Health Insurance which is offered by the UPMC Health Plan. Students who wish to waive the student insurance plan must have a policy that is compliant with the University's standard and have coverage in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. Please call Gallagher Insurance for any questions regarding plans or visit the Gallagher Insurance
