Step 11: Provide Proof of Immunization

To help protect the health of USF community members, USF requires all new students to have been immunized against certain diseases before they arrive at USF. 

Required Immunizations

  • All Students are required to submit evidence of having received two doses of the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) Immunization. If proof of immunization for MMR is not available, a blood titer showing immunity for each disease will be accepted.
  • All Students must also submit proof of having received three doses of the Hepatitis B Vaccine, or test results showing immunity.
  • International Students are also required to submit proof that a Tuberculosis PPD (Mantoux) Test has been administered in the last 12 months. Students who test positive for PPD are required to submit a chest x-ray that has been taken within the last 12 months.

Submit proof
Health Promotion Services has partnered with Med+Proctor for the collection of all immunization records. Students can visit the immunization page for further directions on how to submit their immunizations. If you plan to move into USF housing, you must submit all required immunizations before moving in.

All students are strongly encouraged to keep a copy of their immunization records for future reference.

Deadline: January 15 by 5 p.m. Failure to submit proof of immunizations by the appropriate deadline will result in a $100 fine, and may also result in a registration hold on your student account. Students planning to live in USF housing must submit all required immunization records prior to moving in.

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 Nursing Health Requirements page 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.
