All incoming, continuing, re-admitted, and transfer students must be compliant with the UC Immunization Requirements and Recommendations, as mandated by the University of California Office of the President.

All students are also required to be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccinations including bivalent boosters (additional doses after primary series), with exceptions allowed for medical or religious reasons. Booster shots may be declined by completing a Declination Statement. 

For more information on the campus policy regarding COVID-19 vaccinations and how to apply for exceptions and booster declinations, please visit UCSB COVID-19 Vaccine Information.

Tips for Locating Immunization Records

  • If you were vaccinated in California, information can be requested through the State of California Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record.
  • If you cannot locate your records and you were previously vaccinated for Varicella and MMR, you can request blood tests (titers) from your current medical care provider.
  • If the titer result is negative you must begin the series of vaccinations.
