Upon arrival at Auburn University and before you can officially register for classes, all new students must visit the Auburn University Medical Clinic and complete the Medical Information Form. Alabama state law requires you show written (and translated) proof of a negative tuberculin skin test. If you do not have proof of a negative test result, you will be required to take the test at the clinic. If the test results from your native country were positive, you are required to bring the x-ray film with you to the Auburn University Medical Clinic along with a physician's verification (translated) that you are tuberculosis free.
In addition to having a negative tuberculin skin test, new students must show written (and translated) proof of having taken the measles vaccine.
New students should bring their immunization records with them, if possible.
If you have any questions about the Medical Information Form, please contact the Auburn University Medical Clinic.
The Auburn University International Students and Scholars Health and Sickness Insurance Plan does not pay for preexisting health conditions. A preexisting condition is one that originated, was diagnosed, or was treated or recommended for treatment within the six months before the start date of your Auburn insurance policy. If you have preexisting conditions such as asthma, allergies, blood diseases, pregnancy, etc., make sure you are able to pay for all associated health care during the first six months after beginning your academic program. If you have an ongoing medical condition, please bring any medical history documentation (translated into English) that might help a U.S. doctor treat your illness.
