Tips for Submitting Required Documents

  • Gather all of your immunization documents
  • If you are positive you were vaccinated, or that you had the disease, you can also get a laboratory blood test that verifies you have immunity (e.g., via your healthcare provider or your local county public health department). This test is called a “titer”. Schedule a visit with your healthcare provider to have a titer done if you are not sure you have had the immunizations.
  • Navigate to the Medical Clearances tab in your health portal, complete SJSU Immunization Compliance information and proceed to upload your immunization records.
  • The following file types are accepted: PDF, TIFF, PNG, JPG, BMP.
  • File size should be under 4Mb, If the file size is too big, scan the document into parts (make sure each part has identifying information) and upload individual pages.
  • If files are password protected, make sure to save it as a separate pdf file without password protection prior to submission.
  • If submitting proof such as pharmacy receipt, the document must contain the patient’s name and date of birth, type, date and outcome of each vaccine/titer administered. It should also be clear that it is prepared by a licensed medical provider. 
  • Check the Medical Clearances tab for compliance status updates. Students with missing documentation or items that require further action will receive secure messages through their health portal.
