Tuberculosis Forms


After Survey Completion


After you complete the online tuberculosis screening survey, you’ll be prompted with further direction. If your survey results state that you are not at risk for TB, no further action is required.

If you answered “Yes” to any question on the survey, the following actions are required:

  1. Get a TB test to determine if you have been exposed to the disease. A simple TB skin test will tell if you have ever had TB germs in your body. The test is quick and easy, and does not hurt. See below for a listing of locations offering free to low-cost TB testing.

  2. Have your TB test results read by a medical professional and submit to STLCC. Within 48 to 72 hours after getting the skin test, you must return to the location that conducted your TB test have your results read.

Test results should be submitted to:

STLCC, Enrollment Services
300 South Broadway
St. Louis, MO 63102

      Online Screening Survey FAQs

      Q: What’s the difference between a TB Screening Survey and TB skin testing? 

      A: All degree-seeking students, faculty and staff are required to FIRST take the screening survey, which determines whether you are in a risk group for tuberculosis. If you answer “yes” answer to any question on the survey, you are required to be tested to rule out a diagnosis of tuberculosis.

      Q: I need to retake the screening survey because I accidentally submitted the wrong answer.

      A: You can re-take the TB screening survey by visiting any campus Enrollment Services office to fill out a paper copy.

      Q: What happens to my student registration if I do not submit TB test documentation?

      A: A registration hold will be placed on your student account for the following semester; the hold will not be released until the survey and any follow-up, if required, is completed.
