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.

Students who fail to submit a proof of immunization by August 15 (Fall) and January 15 (Spring) will be charged a $100 late fee.

Requirements

Deadlines

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

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