International Students

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.
