To complete your Steps to Enrollment:

1. You will need your immunization records to complete this step. Use our worksheets (Required Immunizations Worksheet and Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire worksheet worksheet) to prepare (or have your doctor's office fill it out).

2. Log in to the SHS Gateway (UCSB Net ID & password required) 

3. Select the Forms menu in the left column.

4. Select Complete Required Immunization Records & Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire.

5. Once you submit your records you cannot resubmit them

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

Completion of the forms for entry immunization requirements and Tuberculosis (TB) screening should be done by September 1st. The forms may be submitted even if some dates are unknown; the TB screening form must be completed before arrival on campus. Failure to complete these 2 requirements may result in delays with your class registrations. If you have difficulty obtaining the testing or immunizations before arrival on campus, please contact us at We will have special immunization clinics the first 2 weeks after Fall quarter begins for those unable to complete the requirements prior to arrival.

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 in completing the University Immunization Requirements, please email

Exemptions to the Required University Immunizations will only be allowed for medical reasons; click here for further information.

The University of California is committed to protecting the health and well-being of our students, staff and faculty. Therefore, all of the UC campuses are implementing procedures to ensure that students are educated about and receive immunizations to protect themselves and others from preventable and serious contagious diseases (see UC Immunization Policy Final March 2017).
