For all NEW CSUSM students, California State University of higher education system has mandated that new students born on or after January 1, 1957 must demonstrate proof of full immunization to measles and rubella. (Two doses of MMR or lab evidence of immunity)
The MMR Requirement applies to ALL CSUSM First Year, Transfer or Readmitted CSUSM
Students have one semester to comply or they will not be permitted to register for a second semester. Registration holds are placed if proof of immunization has not been submitted to SHCS prior to priority registration date. Any one of the following options will be accepted to fulfill this requirement:
You must be able to provide medical documentation signed by a physician or nurse that
you either had the diseases or the immunization for Measles and Rubella. You must
have received two doses of the immunization:
1) after your first birthday
2) after age 4 years
Documentation can include a physician's verification of immunization records or a copy of a laboratory blood test proving you are immune to measles and rubella.
In order to avoid an Immunization Hold or to clear an existing one, view or download our Certificate of Immunization Form including more detailed information.
You may either submit proof that you have been immunized against measles and rubella with TWO (2) doses of MMR to Student Health & Counseling Services in the following ways:

Bring proof to the Front Desk at Student Health and Counseling Services
If you mail your proof, be sure to include your: Name and Student ID, your date of birth, a return address and a telephone number.
Make an appointment to receive the MMR vaccination if you never have been vaccinated or need a booster. (Please note that if you need two vaccines, the MMR must be administered 30 days apart.) Or you can make an appointment for an MMR titer blood test to check the immunity levels for measles and rubella. There is a fee for both the vaccine and the titer. Please call to check for prices.
Anyone under the age of 18 will need to bring in our signed parental minor consent form before immunization can be given at SHCS.
(Please be aware that you may also need to submit proof of Hepatitis B immunization if you are a first time enrolled student 18 years of age or younger)
