Get Immunized

Just like getting an I-20 and attending orientation, the immunization process is one of the steps you must complete before you can take classes at USC. Submitting your immunizations prior to enrollment is a requirement. Make sure you are prepared for this before you arrive on-campus!

What you need to know

  • If you decide to live on-campus at USC, you will not be permitted to move in to your residence halls until your immunizations have been completed.
  • Even if you will not be living on-campus, you will not be permitted to enroll in courses until you submit your immunization records.
  • If you are concerned that you will not be able to complete the immunization requirements before you arrive on-campus, don't worry! Student Health Services will allow you to take care of your immunizations once you arrive at USC.
  • If you decide to get your immunizations done at USC, make sure that your health insurance is active before getting the immunizations done. 

What you need to do

  • Read about the required tuberculosis screening for students from certain countries. You may need to complete a tuberculosis screening here in the United States if you are from one of the "high-risk" countries.
    • Contact Student Health Services to set up an appointment if you need to do a tuberculosis screening when you arrive at USC.
