CSUSM Immunization Requirement
Required Immunizations for New Students
All NEW students entering CSUSM for the first time (including undergraduate, graduate, students matriculated in self-support degree programs and K-12 students participating in concurrent enrollment courses entering California State University (CSU) in or after Fall 2020) will be required to have the following immunizations or show proof of immunity to these diseases: Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) and Hepatitis B.
- Meningococcal Conjugate (MenACWY).
If students do not meet the immunization requirement, they will not be permitted to enroll in classes. Registration holds are placed if proof of immunization has not been submitted to SHCS prior to the deadline, which means you will be unable to register for the following semester. If you would like assistance with submitting your immunizations, please call SHCS at 760-750-4915. We can assist you over the phone or make an appointment for you at SHCS to help you meet these system-wide requirements.
