Step 9: Submit 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.

For details, Go To the Required Immunizations web page.

Submit Your Immunization Records
Proof of Immunization must be submitted in writing to the Health Promotion Services Office. Acceptable records include your immunization card, high school transcript showing your immunizations, or the USF Health Promotion Services Immunization FormPlease Note that the USF Immunization Form must be completed by a licensed medical professional.

Once proof is obtained, the fastest and preferred way to submit your immunization records is through the Online USF Health Promotion Services Immunization Form. You may also submit documents via postal mail, FAX, or in person.

Nursing Majors
Nursing Majors
 are required to submit additional health-related information necessary for their clinical work by completing the School of Nursing and Health Professions Health Requirement Form. Nursing Majors will be contacted by the School of Nursing and Health Professions through their myUSF e-mail addresses about this special requirement.

USF has partnered with a company called CastleBranch to assist Nursing Majors to meet their special immunization requirements. Nursing Majors will be given instructions on how to create a CastleBranch Account through which to submit their immunization records. Nursing Majors’ immunization records should be submitted directly to the School of Nursing and Health Professions Dean's Office via a CastleBranch account, and not to the Health Promotion Services Office.

Please visit the School of Nursing and Health Professions Health Requirements web page for more detailed information.
