Students who are not compliant with the COVID-19 vaccine and booster requirement will not be able to register for Fall 2022 courses until they have met this requirement.

Incoming students who have not completed this requirement before New Student Orientation will not be able to register during their orientation date.

All new fall 2022 students must submit immunizations, other than COVID-19 vaccine and booster requirement, by August 18 to avoid a hold on their Spring 2023 Registration.


All students who are enrolled at San Diego State University are required to provide proof of the following immunizations:

  • Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR): Two doses with first dose on or after first birthday OR positive titer (laboratory evidence of immunity to disease; see FAQ #4).
  • Varicella (chickenpox): Two doses with first dose on or after first birthday OR positive titer. History of contracting the disease does not meet compliance.
  • Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap): One dose after age 7.
  • Meningococcal conjugate (serogroups A, C, Y, & W‐135): At least one dose at age 16 or older for students up to age 23.
  • Meningococcal B (Meningitis B): Students ages 16-23 must complete the series, which may be two or three doses depending on the brand of the vaccine.
  • Hepatitis B (Hep B): Students ages 18 and younger must complete the series. Based on type of vaccine, the series is either two or three doses (CA Health & Safety Code, Sec. 120390.5).
  • Tuberculosis (TB) risk assessment: All incoming students must complete a tuberculosis risk assessment questionnaire. Incoming students who are at higher risk for TB infection, as determined by the screening questions, should undergo testing for TB infection within one year of SDSU entry. The TB risk assessment is found under the Forms tab in HealtheConnect.


The California State University system announced on Dec. 22, 2021 that all students, faculty and staff in the system will be required to have a COVID-19 primary vaccine series as well as a booster on file to access campus facilities and programs.

SDSU students will not be able to register for classes until they have met the COVID-19 vaccination and booster requirement.

Eligible Population for a Booster Shot

If you have received two shots of either the Moderna or Pfizer series less than 5 months ago, or if you have received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine less than 2 months ago, you are NOT yet eligible for a booster.  Once you become eligible for the booster, you will be required to get the booster to meet this requirement.

Medical or Religious Exemptions 
The CSU COVID-19 vaccination requirement allows for students, faculty and staff to seek an exemption based on medical or religious grounds.

Students who receive an approved vaccination exemption will be required to have COVID-19 testing results on file every five days during the spring semester.
