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.

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

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.

Failure to submit proof of immunizations by the appropriate deadline will result in a $100 fine and will result in a registration hold on your student account.

Exceptions

USF Immunization policy follows California guidelines and American College Health Association (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.
