All entering students must meet the CSU immunization standards determined by the university. Under the direction of the California State University Chancellor, immunity for measles (rubeola) and German measles (rubella) is required for all students born after Jan. 1, 1957, while immunity for Hepatitis B is required for all first-time freshmen 18 years old or younger. The Hepatitis B vaccine is given in a series of three shots and takes six months to complete.
Students enrolled in a California public middle school or high school after July 1, 1999, will have already satisfied this requirement. If you were not enrolled in a California public middle school or high school after July 1, 1999, then you must provide verification of prior immunization or obtain immunization by the end of your first semester. If you’re immune because you’ve already had the disease, you may provide proof or have a blood test done. Verification or immunization for Hepatitis B must be completed before the end of your second semester.
Students will be unable to register for classes until each requirement is met. Log in to your myNorthridge Portal to check the status of a hold due to this CSU policy.
Academic Program and Fieldwork or Clinical Placement Requirements per EO 803
All students enrolled in health care fields of study or teacher education programs are required to provide documentation regarding the completion of immunizations and health screenings as established by the state licensing agencies or clinical placement sites or fieldwork sites. Students should contact the academic program for the specific required immunizations, health screenings (e.g., TB screening and physical examination) and any other fieldwork or clinical placement requirements.
How to Comply with the Immunization Requirements
To submit your proof of immunization or immunity, please collect your immunization records or medical record of antibody titers for these diseases. These can be obtained from your healthcare provider or clinic, or your school nurse. When you have collected all the materials, you will need to log into the MyHealth patient portal. If you need further assistance, please call (818) 677-3666, Option 1.
