Step 9: Provide Proof Of Immunization
Non-Nursing Majors: Due January 15
Nursing Majors: Due August 15 (scroll down)
- Get immunized:
Students born on or after January 1, 1957, must submit proof of 2 doses of MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) immunizations, and students 18 years or younger additionally must submit proof of 3 doses of Hepatitis B. If proof of immunization for MMR and/or Hep B is not available, a blood titer showing immunity of each will be accepted.
- Submit Proof:
Students must submit their records through the online HPS Immunization form, or by fax at (888) 471-2290. Please note, students who intend to move into USF-operated housing will not be able to until all required immunization records are submitted.
- Save a copy:
All students are strongly encouraged to keep the original copy of their immunization records for future reference.
Deadline: August 15 at 5pm
Failure to complete the immunization requirement by the August 15 deadline will result in a $100 late fee and possible registration hold.
Nursing Students Only:
To protect the health of all USF community members and the patients that you serve, USF and our Clinical Partners require students to fulfill certain health requirements. Nursing students are expected to submit their immunization records to the School of Nursing and Health Professions via a Castle Branch account, not Health Promotion Services.
Please go to the following website for full details on specific requirements for nursing majors, and for instructions on how to create a Castle Branch account; you will also receive an email from the BSN program with instructions on how to set up your Castle Branch account: myusf.usfca.edu/nursing/health-requirements
Save a copy:
All students are strongly encouraged to keep a copy of their immunization records for future reference.
Deadline: August 1 (please note: deadline is earlier than for non-nursing majors)
Failure to complete the immunization requirement by the August 1 deadline will result in a possible registration hold, and can impact move-in if you will be living in university housing.
