Health Screening (CSU Immunization Requirements)

Notice: The following information reflects revisions made by the CSU to Executive Order 803. CSUN will not be implementing enhanced immunization requirements as had been planned for all new students entering Fall 2020. CSUN will maintain the current immunization requirements, available at Immunizations.

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 1st 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 1st 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 of blood testing for TB infection within one year of CSU entry.

*Higher risk include 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 are required of students as conditions of enrollment in CSU.
