A state law requires all “entering students” to be vaccinated against bacterial meningitis if you are under the age of 22 as of the first day of the semester. You must receive the vaccination at least ten days before the first day of the semester (and no earlier than five years prior to the first day of the semester) and provide documentation of your vaccination or documentation of a doctor’s appointment for the vaccination with your application. Documentation of your vaccination must also be sent to Student Health Services prior to registration.
Students who enroll in one of the Summer Session online courses are exempt from this requirement and are not required to provide proof of the vaccination.
Note: The Meningococcal vaccination law applies to all students, both degree-seeking and visiting students, including visiting students that are registered for courses that meet on campus that do not carry academic credit.
