This page introduces health requirements and services for UDM students.

Health requirements for UDM students

If you are a "residential" student (i.e. you are living on campus), or if you are an international student, UDM requires you to have a recent tuberculosis (TB) test on file.  Also, all residential students must carry either enroll in student health insurance, or waive the insurance.

TB test

  • UDM requires that a recent tuberculosis (TB) skin test be on file for all new incoming residential (dorm) students and international students
  • Chest x-ray is required if skin test is positive
  • If already tested for TB, test must have been performed in the United States or Canada within the last 12 months (1 year)
  • Send in the TB skin test postcard!
  • TB skin tests can be done at the UDM Health Center (see below)

Insurance

  • UDM requires all residential (dorm) students to carry health insurance
  • All residential students are required to either enroll in or waive the student health insurance by the deadline.  See the Health Insurance page for details.
  • If you do NOT waive the insurance, you will be billed for the student insurance, regardless of other insurance coverage (e.g. parent's insurance) 
  • Non-residential students (not living in a UDM dorm) can also purchase the insurance if needed

Health services

The UDM Health Center offers many services to the UDM student body. (See the Health Center site.)  A Registered Nurse or a Nurse Practitioner is on site, and the staff works in conjunction with physicians from a local hospital.
