    Check ARC. Since you are a student at SCC, ARC will also serve you. SCC health clinic should be able to administer some of the vaccines there, and you can get the other ones at ARC. The nurses will also have a list of low cost vaccines nearby.

    Is there anyone within one hundred miles of Sacramento that knows how to go about this without having to sell a kidney?

    I just went to a local health clinic for my titers... insurance wont cover anything required by a "third party" (aka employment, school, etc.) and so $620 dollars later... I have my physical, PPD, and titers for Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella, and Hep B.

    Depending on your state & the program you are entering, some people (though perhaps not the OP) may be able to get their records from the state health department. My pediatrician long ago retired & passed so those (nearly 40 year old) records are no longer accessible, but according to the county health department, even back then, many doctors participated in state records. It will take 2 weeks to get a response, but if I can prove I had MMR then at least I get to skip that titer!

    Also, though I know some campus health clinics are just as expensive as any other clinic, my campus clinic is considerably cheaper than most places with whom I checked.
