3. Once you are logged in to your home page, select forms in the left column.

4. Select Immunization Step 1: Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire.

5. Select Immunization Step 2: Enter Required Immunization Records.
     - Have your immunization records        on hand for this process as you          will need to upload them.

You cannot change items after the form has been submitted.

Starting Fall 2017,  per University of California Immunization Requirements & Recommendations, (also available in Chinese 中文 HERE) all incoming students are required to complete a Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire, students with a high risk for tuberculosis must also provide documentation of tuberculosis testing. Students must also provide documentation of vaccination or immunity to certain infectious diseases. We strongly encourage you to have your immunizations up-to-date before you arrive at UCSB.

Completion of the Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire and Required Immunization Records should be done by September 1st. The forms may be submitted even if some dates are unknown; the TB Screening Questionnaire must be completed before arrival on campus. As long as you submit some information your registration will be protected and you will be able to start classes at the beginning of Fall Quarter 2017 (NOTE: Your UCSB Steps to Enrollment page may still show you as non-compliant). If you are missing immunizations or need help completing these forms, you can make an “Immunization Review” appointment at Student Health through our GATEWAY portal after Fall quarter begins, or after 9/11/17 for International Students.

You will not receive a confirmation but the immunization documents will be incorporated into your permanent electronic medical record. 

On your correspondence, please include your:

• full name
• date of birth
• perm number

For questions or problems you may encounter completing the University Immunization Requirements, please email or call 805-893-2525.
If you have difficulty uploading your records you may also fax them to 805-893-3593 or upload them directly through the Gateway (log in and choose “Immunization Status” in the left column menu).
