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.

We encourage you to start this process early as you may be required to complete additional steps to meet the requirements. 

  NOTE: We know that due to COVID-19 it might be harder to complete some of these requirements by the deadline of July 31, especially if you are needing to get vaccines/titers as access to see your provider or visit a clinic may be more limited. 

The $50 late compliance fee that is typically applied for those that don't meet the July 31 deadline, will now be moved out until September 18 to allow those that are having issues completing the requirements more time before a late fee applies. 

However, please continue to try and complete your requirements by July 31.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update our website as things evolve.

Steps to Complete

  1. See below for your formal deadline to comply.
  2. Complete the TB requirements.
    1. Complete the "TB Screening Questions" on eTang under "Medical Clearances."
    2. Submit additional documentation, if necessary.
  3. Enter your documented immunization dates and upload records of all self-reported immunizations on eTang under "Medical Clearances." 
    1. Note: enter only dates for which you have verifiable records.
  4. Match your previous vaccines/titers against the required age, dose and interval parameters:
  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.
  7. On the eTang portal you will also see a list of RECOMMENDED vaccines, this is separate from the required ones listed above, however, we strongly recommend you also get those as well.

Students who are not fully compliant with all Mandatory TB & Immunization Requirements by the formal deadline may be charged a late compliance fee.

If you need assistance with the compliance process, please contact us.
