Immunization Requirements and Recommendations
Why Do I Need To Get Immunized?
A healthy campus begins with you. The health of the individual can affect the health of the campus community. The Immunization Clinic is a walk-in clinic that administers vaccinations as a simple, safe, and effective way to prevent many diseases from spreading. To protect you and the campus community, all new USC students are required to provide proof of compliance with USC’s immunization and screening requirements. The deadline to submit compliance is the add/drop date of your first semester at USC. Please note, that some immunizations require an order from a medical services provider. If so, schedule an appointment with a clinician or travel consultant to obtain the order prior to receiving the immunization.
New Student Requirements
If the health requirement deadline isn’t met, you will have a registration hold placed on your student account that will prevent you from registering for the next semester of classes. There will also be a $25 charge added to your student account. Please ensure you complete this in a timely manner.
