All incoming, re-admitted, & Transfer students must be fully compliant prior to UC Entry. As mandated by the UC Office of the President.  

Immunization and Tuberculosis (TB) Requirements

 



How to Complete Your TB Requirement for Incoming students:

 

  • Log in to your  Gateway Patient Portal and select Medical Clearances. Begin the process by selecting + TB Screen 5 questions.

  • This option may not be available to you. If so you must submit a TB test within 1 year of UC entry. Download the TB Health Assessment form for your Clinician's completion and/or upload your TB test results in the downloadable forms section.

  • Monitor your Gateway messages to see if you are required to have further Tuberculosis (TB) testing.

  • You can also visit our Tuberculosis Information and FAQ 

How to Complete Your Immunization Requirements for Incoming students:

 

  • You will need your immunization records for this step or a completed immunization worksheet. (Immunization Worksheet)

  • Log in to your Gateway Patient Portal and select Medical Clearances.

  • Upload your Immunization record.
    • Helpful hint: many find that taking a picture on their smart phone is the easiest way to upload the images of their records. When doing this please log on to your Patient Portal Gateway    (with your smart phone) and select the images from your camera roll. 
    • If you need to locate your records please contact your Physician's office or the high school you attended.
    • If you cannot locate your records you can request titers from your Physician (if you are sure you have been vaccinated in the past). If the titer result is negative you must begin the series of the vaccination.

  • Enter your vaccination dates into the corresponding vaccine field. 

  • You can edit the date values if entered incorrectly. 
    • Please Note: Your records may be audited and adjusted accordingly. Check your Patient Portal Gateway messages often to see if additional requirements are needed.

  • Monitor your Gateway messages often to see if you are require further vaccination requirements.

 

Make sure to schedule an appointment with a provider for any required vaccinations/titers/TB testing prior to your arrival on campus as we strongly encourage you to be fully compliant before the start of your first quarter.
