Immunization

Immunizations help maintain the long-term health of our campus and the greater University of San Francisco community. Any immunity established from childhood vaccinations can wear off over time, putting yourself and others at risk of infection. As a condition of enrollment, USF requires and recommends immunizations for specific student populations.

The Health Promotion Services has partnered with Med+Proctor for the collection of all immunization records for all new undergraduate domestic students, graduate (domestic) students who live in USF-operated housing, and all international students. Students must register with their USF Dons email address at medproctor.com and complete their profile online. Med+Proctor is HIPAA and FERPA compliant. Review their privacy policy.

Requirements

Population Requirement Exclusion
All undergraduate domestic students MMR (2 doses, one month apart), and Hepatitis B vaccine or test showing immunity for all students 18 years of age or younger. Students born before January 1, 1957
Graduate (Domestic) students who live in USF-operated housing MMR (2 doses, one month apart) Students born before January 1, 1957
All international students MMR (2 doses, one month apart), PPD (Mantoux) test in the last 12 months (students with a positive PPD are required to submit a chest x-ray administered within the last 12 months), and Hepatitis B vaccine or test showing immunity None

There is a $10.00 one-time fee to set up your Med+Proctor membership account. Membership provides lifetime access to your immunization data that can be shared with others as you designate.

Deadlines

The deadline to submit proof of required immunizations depends on your term of admission:

  • Fall Semester: August 15 at 5 p.m.
  • Spring Semester: January 15 at 5 p.m.
  • Exception: Students planning to reside in USF-operated housing must submit all required immunization records prior to moving in.

Students who do not have a “verified” status on file at MedProctor will result in a $100 fine and a registration hold on their student account. We encourage all students to upload the required documentation prior to move-in day and classes. Students must check their USF Dons email account for important communication regarding their status with MedProctor.

Submit Proof

Students should take their respective MedProctor Immunization Form to their medical provider to complete the required documentation. Alternatively, students may upload a copy of their complete immunization record, so long as their medical provider signs it.

Exceptions

The USF immunization policy follows California guidelines and the American College Health Association's (ACHA) recommendations. Thus, an exception to the USF immunization requirement can be granted when conflicts with a medical condition. Students must provide documentation from a licensed medical professional. MedProctor provides medical waivers for individuals meeting the criteria. These are available for download within the student profile “documents” section.

Questions & Support

Students with questions about this process are encouraged to contact MedProctor directly, utilizing the “live chat” feature they offer or directly through their support site. You may also contact them directly at help@medproctor.com with specific questions regarding USF requirements.
