The California State University (CSU) Immunization Policy requires students to obtain the vaccinations and screening recommended for colleges and universities by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for those diseases that can be passed on to others by respiratory transmission.

Proof must be submitted to Student Health Services PRIOR TO ENROLLMENT. Students who do not provide proof of full immunization by the beginning of the second term of the academic year (i.e., fall, winter, spring) shall not be allowed to enroll until proof of full immunization has been provided to the campus.

CSU students are REQUIRED to obtain the following vaccines and undergo screening/risk assessment for Tuberculosis:
Required Immunizations & Screenings Required Dosage & Screening Information
Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) Two (2) doses with first dose on or after 1st birthday; OR positive titer (laboratory evidence of immunity to disease)
Varicella (Chickenpox) Two (2) doses with first dose on or after 1st birthday; OR positive titer.
History of contracting the disease does not meet compliance.
Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap) One (1) dose after age 7
Meningococcal conjugate (Serogroups A, C, Y, & W‐135) One (1) dose on or after age 16 for all students and age 21 or younger
Hepatitis B (Hep B) Students age 18 and younger (CA Health & Safety Code, Sec. 120390.5)
Screening/Risk Assessment: Tuberculosis (TB) All incoming students must complete a Tuberculosis risk questionnaire. Incoming students who are at higher risk* for TB infection, as indicated by answering “yes” to any of the screening questions, should undergo either skin of blood testing for TB infection within 1 year of CSU entry.
*Higher risk include travel to or living in South and Central America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East; prior positive TB test; or exposure to someone with active TB disease.

How to complete the CSU Immunization Requirements and forms in MyHealthPortal

Be prepared! Gather all information and documents you have regarding immunizations (Immunization (shot) record and/or titer (blood test), chest x ray results) to help complete your requirements.

Documents will ONLY be accepted if submitted through your health portal. Do not mail in, bring in person or email documents to CPP Student Health.

Log in to MyHealthPortal, click on the “Medical Clearances” section to begin:

  • Enter dates each immunization was administered OR date blood test was done
  • Complete/submit TB Screen Risk Form and other digital documents
  • Upload a copy of your immunization record(s), chest x ray or lab results. We will not accept dates only; documentation needs to be submitted along with dates you submit to be verified.
  • Allow 5 business days after you submitted all information you have to be reviewed. Our team will contact you in the “Messages” section of your health portal if any further information or updates are needed.

You may obtain copies your Immunization (shot) record from your primary care provider(s), parent/guardian or previous school or university.

If you believe you have met the immunization requirements as part of your childhood vaccines but are unable to obtain copies of your records, titers (blood test) can be done to check for immunity for MMR, Varicella, and Hepatitis B (if applicable). However, if your titer (blood test) results are low, you will need to get vaccinated.
