Fall 2020 Admitted Students

Please note that our immunization requirements have recently changed in response to a new Executive Order (PDF, 650kb).

Required Immunizations

The California State University requires that all incoming students starting in or after Fall 2020 and did not attend a California public high school provide documentation of vaccination or immunity to the following, consistent with guidelines of the American College Health Association, California Department of Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

Required Vaccination:

  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)
  • Hepatitis B (Hep B) - 18 years old and younger

Important

Student Health Services (SHS) is currently unable to offer immunizations. Please contact Ventura County Public Health or your local medical provider if you need to complete any vaccinations to fulfill the immunization requirements.

If you are missing some of your immunization records, SHS or your primary health care provider can prescribe a blood test (Titer Test) that may assist in determining immunity. Please call SHS at 805-437-8828 for additional information.

Some vaccinations require two (2) or more doses. When submitting your records to the verification platform, please ensure that information for all doses is included to avoid delays in immunization verification. For more information about vaccine dosage, please visit the CDC website.

Screening for Tuberculosis - All incoming students who are at higher risk for TB infection should undergo either skin or blood testing for TB within six (6) months prior to entry to CSUCI. Higher risk includes travel to or living in South & Central America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East; prior positive TB test; or exposure to someone with active TB.

Academic Program and Fieldwork or Clinical Placement Requirements

All students enrolled in health care fields of study or teacher education programs are required to provide documentation regarding the completion of immunizations and health screenings as established by the state licensing agencies or clinical placement sites or fieldwork sites. Students should contact the academic program for the specific required immunizations, health screenings, and any other fieldwork or clinical placement requirements.

Vaccines for International Travel/Study Abroad

Exemption
