  5. IF ADMITTED - Bacterial Meningitis Immunization. TEC 51.9192 requires all students under age 22 entering an institution of higher education to provide current proof of vaccination against bacterial meningitis (an immunization given within 5 years of the date of intended enrollment) or meet certain requirements for declining such a vaccination. The original TDSHS form required for students declining the vaccination must be submitted to the Office of Student Enrollment Services. Students may not register for classes until this requirement is satisfied.

Priority is given to qualified applicants seeking their initial bachelor's degree; therefore, non-degree admission may be limited or not available.
