International students are required to submit proof of insurance prior to admission to UVU. However, often the insurance they have does not cover any health care expenses in the United States. We encourage international students to obtain health insurance that provides coverage while living in this country.
All new or returning international students are required to have TB testing prior to registration for classes. This testing process takes 48-72 hours to complete. If a student has ever received the BCG vaccine or a positive TB test, a chest x-ray is required. This is another 48-72 hour process. We cannot allow registration until the TB testing is complete. Please coordinate your arrival time and registration at UVU accordingly.
If a student is required to have a chest x-ray they are referred to a community clinic located close to UVU. The cost of the x-ray is $60 and is not negotiable.
