HCU Graduate Student Orientation

Meningitis Vaccination Requirement

The Texas State Legislature has enacted a law that states as of January 1, 2012, all new students who are under the age of 22 must show proof of meningococcal vaccination within the last 5 years.

Your doctor’s office or a local pharmacy may administer the vaccine. See other clinic options.

You must turn in the HCU Meningitis Form and proof of vaccination in the form of the shot record signed by the nurse or physician who administered the vaccine.

These completed documents must be submitted to Graduate Admissions before you can register.
