Health Screening (CSU Immunization Requirements)

Notice: The following information reflects revisions made by the CSU to Executive Order 803 and are effective for all new incoming students for Fall 2022.

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.

Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR): Two (2) doses with first dose on or after first birthday; or positive titer (laboratory evidence of immunity to disease).

Hepatitis B (Hep B): 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.

Varicella (Chickenpox): Two (2) doses with first dose on or after first birthday; or positive titer (laboratory evidence of immunity to disease) prior to enrollment.

Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap): One (1) dose after age 7.

Meningococcal Conjugate (Serogroups A, C, Y, & W-135): One (1) dose on or after 16 for all students and age 21 or younger.

Tuberculosis Screening/Risk Assessment: 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 or blood testing for TB infection within one year of CSU entry.

*Higher risk includes travel or living in South or Central America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East; prior positive TB test; or exposure to someone with active TB disease.

The above are not admission requirements, but they are required of students as conditions of enrollment in CSU.

Please see the Klotz Student Health Center catalog entry for additional information on CSU Immunization Requirements. CSUN students must comply with the above requirements no later than the beginning of their second term of enrollment. For detailed instructions on how to electronically upload immunization documentation to CSUN’s myHealth Portal, see Immunizations. Students will not have access to this portal until they are currently enrolled. Contact the Klotz Student Health Center at (818) 677-3666 with questions.
