This is to update you that Northwest now requires students to submit a TB screening form after acceptance, but before the University issue the I-20. When a student is accepted to Northwest, student receives information about this form. If there is any students who have been accepted but not received their I-20, please ask if they have submitted this form. It may be scanned and send electronically. However:
- The form MUST be filled out by the student, not by an advisor/agency or anyone else on the student’s behalf
- Note that below the Personal Information box, student MUST initial on the line, as well as sign at the bottom of the form. For example, I would write in “PRH” on the line, indicating the first letters of my GIVEN, MIDDLE, and LAST names.
Universities Health History Form (http://www.nwmissouri.edu/wellness/pdf/healthform.pdf page 4) gives a list of countries which require the TB Screening Form. If the student’s country does not appear on this form (e.g., Sweden), the student is exempt from submitting the form.
