Health Screening

Entering CSU students are required to present proof of the following immunizations to the CSU campus they will be attending before the beginning of their first term of enrollment.
All new and readmitted students must provide proof of full immunization against measles and rubella prior to enrollment. These are not admission requirements, but shall be required of students as conditions of enrollment of CSU or be required for certain groups of enrolled students who have increased exposure to these diseases. Proof of immunization must be taken to the Student Health Center in person. Mailed forms cannot be accepted. Students who are unable to provide proof prior to enrollment may be enrolled with the condition that they provide proof of full immunization against measles and rubella no later than the beginning of the second year of enrollment. Students who have not complied by this time will have a hold placed on their records. The Student Health Center can provide measles/rubella immunizations without cost to those students unable to obtain acceptable proof of immunizations.
All new students who will be 18 years of age or younger at the start of their first term at a CSU campus must provide proof of full immunization against Hepatitis B before enrolling. Full immunization against Hepatitis B consists of three timed doses of vaccine over a minimum 4 to 6 months period. If you need further details or have special circumstances, please consult the Student Health Center at (310) 243-3629. Each incoming freshman who will be residing in on-campus housing will be required to return a form indicating that they have received information about meningococcal disease and the availability of the vaccine to prevent contracting the disease and indicating whether or not the student has chosen to receive the vaccination. These are not admission requirements, but are required of students as conditions of enrollment in CSU. Proof of immunization must be taken to the Student Health Center in person. Mailed forms cannot be accepted. Students who are unable to present proof prior to their first enrollment may be enrolled on the condition that they provide proof of full immunization against Hepatitis B no later than the beginning of the second year of enrollment. Students who have not complied by this time will have a hold placed on their records. The Student Health Center can provide the series of three Hepatitis B immunizations without cost to those students unable to obtain acceptable proof of immunization.
Students who have questions about the immunization requirements, or who need to discuss an exemption from the requirements based on medical considerations or religious or personal beliefs, should contact the Student Health Center at (310) 243-3629.
