6. CSU-Wide Immunization Requirements

Please be advised that there will be an upcoming requirement for immunizations, per 'Chancellor's Office (C.O.) Executive Order 803.  Students will be required to show proof of being compliant with the requirement.  This requirement will initially apply to incoming/transfer students. Still, it is recommended that all students consider becoming compliant with these requirements, as they are, acceptable health practices per California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Also, in the event of certain outbreaks, all students may be asked to verify their immunization status. The immunizations required and recommended by the C.O. can be found here. A definite date for compliance with immunizations has not yet been set; this date will be forthcoming in the next few months and students will have a semester to get their shots. This notice serves to notify students which immunizations will be required so that they have time to get them.  Please note, students/parents will be further notified as to how to input/upload their own immunization records once the process is set up for this purpose. Please DO NOT bring immunization records to the CSUDH Student Health Center or the Admissions Office for this purpose, but DO start working on getting these documents/immunization requirements taken care of so as not to scramble, as many of these vaccinations do take certain time intervals and multiple doses to complete. 

If you have any questions, please email admissions@csud.edu or call 310.243.3645.
