Mandatory TB & Immunization Program

About the Mandatory Requirements

All incoming and re-admitted students must satisfy TB screening and immunization requirements as mandated by the UC Office of the President by the established deadline before the semester starts.

  Important Fall 2020 Updated Information

We are waiving the $50 late fee due to the COVID situation. 

Whether you are going to be studying/living remotely or on campus the due date of 7/31/20 remains the same and enrollment holds for non-compliance will be 10/1/20 per the UC systemwide policy.

  • For those that are coming to campus and still have requirements to meet, we will likely be holding immunization clinics/appointments at the start of the semester.  Check our website in early August for details.
  • For international students, we realize that not all of the required vaccines may be available in your country and we will work with you on your situation if you are missing a vaccine.

  5. Check your compliance status on eTang by selecting "Medical Clearances."
  6. Schedule any outstanding vaccines/titers as soon as possible with your medical provider.
