Mandatory TB Awareness Course

To protect students' health and safety, MSU requires all newly entering international students to view a TB e-learning module and complete a quiz at The TB e-learning module and quiz will be loaded as a course entitled Tuberculosis (TB) Awareness. You should login to your D2L account and complete the short "course." It’s required for all international students. Failing to do so will result in a hold on your student account and you will not be able to register until the hold is lifted.

Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. Not everyone infected with TB bacteria becomes sick. As a result, two TB-related conditions exist: latent TB infection (LTBI) and TB disease. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal.
