If you are required to undergo testing for Tuberculosis (TB) or retest for TB, there will be a hold on your MyJCCC student account. To satisfy the hold, you must:  

  • undergo a TB blood test, and
  • submit the test result and any other documentation (if required), to the International and Immigrant Student Services office (IISS) by the deadline communicated to you by the IISS office. 

Do not go for a TB test before consulting IISS staff, if you:

  • tested positive for TB skin test in the past
  • completed a full course of treatment for latent TB infection, or you
  • underwent a TB test within the past 2 years

If one of these cases applies to you, contact the IISS office to be provided with specific information on how to proceed to meet the TB testing requirement.

You are required to undergo a TB blood test instead of the TB skin test if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • are from a country on the TB country list, and/or
  • have ever had the BCG vaccine, and/or
  • you tested positive in the past on a TB skin test, yet you have never undergone a TB blood test
