Coronavirus/COVID-19 Information

Student Vaccination Certification Process

Per CSU policy, vaccinations and boosters against COVID-19 are required to access campus facilities and participate in in-person learning and activities. 

All students must complete their COVID-19 Vaccination Self-Certification by August 15, 2022.

Students should submit their vaccination and booster status via the Student Center by clicking “Covid 19 Vaccination” in the Student Records menu. 

Using the form, you will indicate whether: 

  • you have been vaccinated or received a booster and upload a picture of your vaccine record
  • you qualify for a medical or religious exemption 
  • you do not plan to access any campus facilities or participate in any in-person courses or activities  

Students who have only received one dose of their primary vaccination series should upload evidence of their single shot here.

Students who have received their primary vaccination series but are not yet booster eligible should complete their self-certification after they receive their second dose. These students will also need to update their self-certification with their booster information once they become eligible.

Students who have received their primary vaccination series and their booster should complete their self-certification and include their booster information.

5. Section III – Attachments

Upload Vaccination Record Card

Attach a copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, QR Code from the State of California, letter from a health care provider, etc. 

NOTE: To add your booster, you must "Delete" the existing attachment first and upload new documentation in one of the following formats:

  • Bitmap Image (.BMP)
  • Graphical Interchange Format (.GIF)
  • JPEG Image (.JPG/.JPEG)
  • Portable Graphics Format (.PNG)
  • Portable Document Format (.PDF)

Note: iPhone/iPad users may need to convert their photo file prior to uploading. Many iPhones default to .HEIC photo file types, so you will need to convert to a standard format to upload. A simple way to do this is to open the photo of your vaccine card in the Photos app and take a screenshot. The screenshotted image will be a .JPG file.

Successful upload example:
