Measles Documentation
USC has implemented a mandatory measles immunization policy for all students. You must comply with the policy or you will not be allowed to register. Please fill out the measles immunity form and obtain any documentation necessary before leaving for Los Angeles. Measles (Rubeola) should not be confused with German Measles (rubella). The distinction is important and protection against German Measles (rubella) does not mean you are protected against measles (Rubeola).

USC has a mandatory measles immunization policy for all students. Please fill out the measles immunity form and promptly submit it to the IBEAR office. The form will be mailed to you. You must comply with the policy or you will not be allowed to register. Late submittal of proof of measles vaccination will result in a late fee per month and a hold on your diploma.
