- State law requires all new students under the age of 22 entering a higher education institution to show proof of having the bacterial meningitis vaccination or booster 10 days prior to the start of term in which they are attending.
Students who have been involved with the criminal system, please be advised that your background could keep you from being licensed by the State of Texas. If you have a question about your background and licensure, please speak with your faculty member or the department chair. You also have the right to request a criminal history evaluation letter from the applicable licensing agency.
