COVID-19 vaccination certification
The university is now requiring all students to submit online COVID-19 vaccination certifications prior to the fall semester.
All students, including online-only students, must access the chiclet below and attest/certify their COVID-19 vaccination status.
STEP 1: By August 23rd, visit your single sign-on webpage: https://sso.csulb.edu and complete the Vaccine Certification web form
You will be asked to upload documentation of your vaccination, which in most cases will be a PDF or JPG of your completed immunization card. We recommend using a smartphone to obtain this image. This website meets appropriate standards to process, store and transmit personal health information. If necessary, the web form includes functionality to claim a legitimate medical or religious exemption.
If you are unable to attest to having been fully immunized for any reason (including exemptions) by August 23rd, you will be notified about your required participation in a weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing program.
STEP 2: Complete the COVID-19 pre-screen in your single sign-on webpage: https://sso.csulb.edu every time you visit campus.
Various locations on campus will require you to present your green check mark indicating you are safe to enter the campus.
Students who have not completed the online form by September 30th will have an academic hold placed on their record.

The CSU Immunization Policy requires students to obtain the vaccinations and screening recommended for colleges and universities by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for those diseases that can be passed on to others by respiratory transmission.
At California State University, Long Beach, we believe the health of the individual can affect the health of the entire campus community. We are committed to protecting the health and well-being of our students, the campus community, and beyond to allow students to focus on educational and personal goals.
Immunizations help protect students from acquiring an infectious disease. When a student is immunized, it helps protect other students as well. Immunizations are proven to be safe and effective, and protect against serious illness.
