- Varicella (Chickenpox): 2 doses on or after the first birthday OR laboratory test to show proof of immunity (titer). If you have both an immunization and titer, please upload the immunization record only, not both the immunization and the titer.

- Meningitis B (Trumenba or Bexsero) – Required for Housing students only: Students who will be living in housing must complete all doses prior to moving into housing. CDC recommends administering 3 doses to people 10 years of age or older who are at increased risk for meningococcal disease. Living in housing is a risk environment, therefore 3 doses of Trumenba is required.
- All incoming students must complete a Tuberculosis (TB) risk questionnaire. Incoming students who are at higher risk for TB infection should undergo either skin or blood testing for TB infection within 1 year of entry into CSULB.
