Tuberculosis Questionnaire

Before new students come to campus, they must complete the Tuberculosis Questionnaire. Students who are at higher risk for tuberculosis must have a tuberculosis risk-assessment completed. For high-risk students, the tuberculosis risk-assessment must be completed by the student's healthcare provider before the student's arrival at Whitworth.
