All newly-admitted incoming UCLA students must provide documentation of vaccination or immunity to certain infectious diseases (Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR), Varicella, Pertussis, and Meningitis). In addition, newly admitted incoming students must be screened for tuberculosis risk by completing the TB risk questionnaire form on the Ashe Patient Portal. Students found to be at high risk for Tuberculosis must provide documentation that they have a negative Tuberculosis test done within 6 months of entry into UCLA.
Please be advised: New for 2021, COVID-19 vaccination will be required for students, faculty and staff -- regardless of FDA approval. See below for more information.
COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement
While social distancing and other measures to prevent infection are of the utmost importance during the COVID-19 emergency, it's equally important to stay healthy and protect yourself against other communicable diseases.
At this time the University of California COVID-19 Policy will require --with very few exceptions-- that all students, faculty and staff be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus before they will be allowed on campus or in a facility or office.
Compliance with the policy means vaccination two (2) weeks before the first day of Fall quarter instruction.
That deadline also applies to requests for an allowable exception (on medical, disability, or religious grounds) or deferral (based on pregnancy).
The submittal deadline for students starting or returning to campus after Fall 2021 is no later than their first date of instruction for the term when they first enroll.
