Frequenty Asked Questions

When can I have the test completed at PUSH?


Please call 765-494-1723 for an appointment. Insurance becomes effective August 6th for the fall semester (January 1st for the spring semester). Do NOT have immunizations/ TB tests performed prior to the start of the policy.

What is the deadline to have these items completed?


The deadline for having your medical history form submitted and the required TB testing and immunizations completed is September 15th (fall semester), February 15th (spring semester).

What if I am a returning student who was previously enrolled at Purdue?


You should check with us to make sure your record is on file. Call 765-494-1837 or come to PUSH, Room 136.

What if I am a transfer or graduate student and my other university has this information?


You can contact your previous university to send us their record of your immunizations. They do not automatically send us your record.

What happens if my tuberculosis test is positive?


You will be notified by e-mail and will need to return for a chest x-ray. This will incur another copay if you have the student plan.

What happens if I don’t comply with the requirement by the deadline?


A hold will be placed on your academic record and you will be unable to register until all requirements are complete.
