(If the results of the PPD/TB skin test are positive, you must have a Tuberculosis (TB) Evaluation Form attached with your chest X-ray report within the past five years filled out by your health care provider.

You will obtain a Certificate of Tuberculosis Evaluation, also known as Public Health Clearance.

  • New and re-entry applicants must also complete a Health Clearance Form and submit it to the Student Health Services office.

Required documents must be submitted to the Student Health Services office and be cleared before orientation and registration. Failure to submit documents to clear heath requirements will delay registration.

 

All students are highly encouraged to purchase a medical health insurance plan valid on Guam.

International Students

Most medical care services in the United States are extremely expensive. To protect our UOG international (I-20) students from these high costs, the University requires all full-time international students to have health insurance by providing proof of coverage that is valid on Guam. You may contact the University Designated School Official at the Office of Admissions & Records for more information at (671) 735-2201.

 

Exchange Students

The University strongly recommends all full-time exchange students have health insurance coverage valid on Guam.
