Required Immunizations

Texas law requires all students entering an institution of higher education (public and private) to either receive a vaccination against bacterial meningitis or meet certain criteria for declining such a vaccination. This law also requires that the meningitis vaccination occurs within a five-year period before the student arrives at school. This applies to all new incoming students, under the age of 22, regardless of living on or off campus or any student, that sits out a long semester. 

The meningits vaccine is offered at Student Medical Services during New Student Orientations and Transfer Student Orientations to new and returning students.
