Students enrolled in a California school for the seventh grade or higher on or after July 1, 1999 will have satisfied the requirements for Hepatitis B and for Measles and Rubella (German Measles). Entering CSULB students who have not satisfied these requirements must comply with the following requirements. These are not admission requirements, but students who do not satisfy them will not be permitted to enroll in the California State University. Failure to comply will result in a “hold” on future registration.
• Measles and Rubella (German Measles) Immunization: All new and readmitted students must provide proof of full immunization against measles and rubella prior to enrollment.
• Hepatitis B Immunization: All new students who will be 18 years of age or younger at the start of their first term at a CSU campus must provide proof of full immunization against Hepatitis B before enrolling. Full immunization against Hepatitis B consists of three timed doses of vaccine over a minimum 4 to 6 months period. If you need further details or have special circumstances, please consult Student Health Services. Each incoming freshman who will be residing in on-campus housing will be required to return a form indicating that they have received information about meningococcal disease and the availability of the vaccine to prevent contracting the disease and indicating whether or not the student has chosen to receive the vaccination. These are not admission requirements, but are required of students as conditions of enrollment in CSU.
• Meningococcal Disease Information: Each incoming freshman who will be residing in on-campus housing will be required to return a form to housing indicating that they have received information about meningococcal disease and the availability of the vaccine.

Measles/Rubella and Hepatitis B clearance is obtained by presenting to Student Health Services 1) a medical immunization record showing dates of shots given, or 2) a record of blood tests showing immunity, or 3) receiving immunization(s). or 4) making a request for medical or personal religious exemption. Students may receive the immunizations from their health care provider, HMO, or Public Health Department at low cost. Immunizations may also be obtained at Student Health Services for a minimal charge for Measles and Rubella (German Measles) and vaccine Hepatitis B. Acceptable proof may be by records from high school, private health care providers, and local health departments.
