New Students

Our mission is to support your academic success by providing excellent health care and promoting wellness. Whether you are new to the University as a freshman, transfer, international or graduate student or have been on campus for a while, we hope you will find your health and wellness needs met at UTA Health Services.


All incoming international students who are new to UTA are required to complete TB screening prior to attending classes on campus. Health Services accepts both T-Spot and Quantiferon Gold blood tests completed in the United States within the last 12 months. Mantoux/PPD/Tuberculin (TB) skin test results are not accepted.


The University of Texas System contracts with Academic Health Plans to provide an affordable and comprehensive student health insurance plan (UT SHIP) to UTA students.
