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.

  Students who started in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021:

For those that were remote in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021, the TB and Immunization requirements were put on hold. At this time for Fall 2021, the campus has indicated that there will be a return to in-person classes, therefore, the requirements should be met by all Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 students prior to coming to campus. 

 Students starting in Fall 2021:

At this time the campus has indicated that there will be a return to in-person classes for Fall 2021, therefore, the requirements should be met by the deadline.
