Immunization Requirements

  • Starting January 2014, Texas law requires all students under the age of 22 to be immunized against bacterial meningitis (SB 62).  Entering students will need to provide a certificate signed by a health care provider, or an official immunization record, verifying that the student has been vaccinated against bacterial meningitis or has received a booster during the 5 years prior to registration.  Please check your shot records to ensure you are in compliance with this new law.  The University has placed a hold on your student account that prevents registration for classes until this requirement is met.
