Medical Requirements

  1. Starting Fall 2016, all incoming students are required to complete the vaccinations and tuberculosis screening noted in the University of California Immunization Requirements. We strongly urge you to have your immunizations up-to-date before you arrive at UCSB. Incoming students must complete this requirement through the confidential GATEWAY portal at the Student Health website.
  2. Tuberculosis tests (either blood test or skin test) within the prior 12 months are required for those who have a positive screening questionnaire (see above), and also for any graduate student admitted to the UCSB teaching credential program. Tests may be obtained at Student Health for a fee, and are covered by Gaucho Health Insurance.
  3. Pre-participation Athletic Physicals are required for all intercollegiate athletes, and must be completed at Student Health. These will be arranged by the Intercollegiate Athletics Department.
